Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bermuda Onion where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. Feel free to join in the fun.
I've been working up a list for the past week to participate here, and this may be my favorite meme to date. I hate it when I come across a word in a book and I have no idea what it means. This meme gets me motivated to keep track of such words, and then, expand my vocab just a little bit more. So, here goes.....
garrulity -- n.
the quality of being garrulous; talkativeness; loquacity
expatiate -- v.
to enlarge in discourse or writing; be copious in description or discussion
expostulate -- v.
to reason earnestly with someone against something that person intends to do or has done; remonstrate
Wow, that was fun! I feel just a little bit smarter today than I did yesterday! :o)
