Wondrous Words Wednesday (1)

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bermudaonion's Weblog where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. Feel free to join in the fun. Don’t forget to leave a link in your comment if you’re participating.

My New Words:

Pirates! by Celia Rees
1. scudding: run, move quickly, to run before a gale with little or no sail set.

2. vertiginous: Apt to change quickly; unstable; whirling; spinning; rotary.

I really wanted to write these words with the sentences I found them with, but I forgot when I first saw them and now the book is back at the library! So I will try to do better next week! I love learning new words. Language is just so exciting!

  1. Those are great words. I would have guessed vertiginous right, but scudding would have totally eluded me. Thanks so much for participating today!
