Weird and Wonderful Weekly Words

Hi Guys,

This post is aimed at the vocab. extension group. I am asking you to provide a comment about a weird, wonderful or unusual word and include its definition. We all know that language changes and evolves over time so there are some strange words out there.

My challenge to you is to see how many weird and wonderful words we can come up with as well as can you use them in your everyday writing. As a group we will then vote on the word of the week and the winner will receive a prize!

Happy hunting,

:) Ms C
