Wondrous Words Wednesday



Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you have encountered or spotlight words you love.  This weekly meme is hosted by BermudaOnion's Weblog.  If you would like to join then please hop over (see link above) and add your URL to the Linky.

You will pleased to know I have found another source for new words or words I want to share with you.  I am currently reading To The Fair land by Lucienne Boyce which also requires me to keep a dictionary close at hand.

sacerdotal - adj. of priests or priestly office
"Around him a semi-circle of sacerdotal officials glared at the father and brother."

obstropolous - adj. dialectal variant of 'obstreperous', meaning making things difficult for the sake of it.
"It was only natural for the Timmins ladies to feel that she committed a further outrage with her obstropolous look."

conchological - noun. The study of shells and shellfish.
" a conchological study and a botanical dictionary."

This final word is from a study resource:

Heterogeneous - adj. diverse in nature
"There were three main groups within the heterogeneous labour force."

Have you found any words you woul;d like to share this week?
