vocabulary building

I started a new book, The Master Butchers Singing Club, by Louise Erdrich, recommended by someone in my book club. It's the same author as my Book Review.

ANYWAY, as I was reading, I came across some words I didn't know, and decided this would be a good topic for a gadget. So, introducing:

DEB'S NEW WORD, on the left hand column.

(update: sorry, this word and definition is gone forever!)


Tulip's Talking said...

Yeah, I knew what that word meant.

NOT! Not a nice meaning, but it is a fun word to say.

GREAT IDEA DEB! of course!!!


storybeader said...

yeah, no wonder I didn't know it!

Jana B said...

Hmmmm....How do you use that in a sentence? Seems like it would have an -ous at the end be used as a adjective... I suppose I could look this up too!! :)
Thanks Deb!

Oooh... I just love learning new words!!! What a fabulous idea :)

Rachel said...

hmmm the word sounds like it would smell like pot potpourri or something... definitely deceiving in it's meaning.

I like the new word idea, cool:) Enjoyed reading your book reviews too, thank you.

Great idea...I need to come back to your blog more often to check out the new word of the day to expand my vocabulary!
