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.

It is exactly four weeks since my last post on this meme.  I have only managed to find two words to share this week.

The first word is from Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

propitious - adj. favourable, giving a good omen or a suitable opportunity.
" It's interesting, the timing.  Propitious, if you will."

The second word was in a clue of a Christmas quiz my reading group played last night.

exiguous - adj. scanty, small.

Now see if you can answer the quiz question.  Sorry, no prizes!
"That exiguous hamlet south of the holy city." 

Have you had a wordy week?
