Wondrous Words Wednesday (6/10/2020)

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Kathy @Bermuda Onion. All you have to do is share new words that you’ve encountered while reading or spotlighting words you love.

I haven’t done one of these in a long time, and now is the perfect time to get back to it. With the exception of #2, all the words I’m sharing today are recent discoveries for me.

As always, screenshots selected words were found on the Word of the Day section of dictionary.com. Since a couple of today’s selections are unusual words, I highly recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to hear what they sound like. You can do this by clicking the source link(s) below each image.

Have you learned a new word or words recently? I’d love to hear them!

    • I never knew such a phobia existed until I stumbled onto the word. It does seem an odd things to fear… but fear doesn’t always make sense, I suppose.

      I’ve seen effervescent in a few books. It doesn’t seem to be used very often (not in the books I read, at least). I like the way it sounds, so I had to use it.
