Wondrous Words Wednesday

An image for the weekly meme Wondrous Words Wednesday… Is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we have encountered in our reading.

It is hosted by Kathy, over at ‘BermudaOnion’s Weblog’.

You can either stop by and leave a link to your own ‘mystery’ words of the week, or just browse the eclectic mix of words that others have discovered, there is always a great selection.

Don’t forget that Kathy and the rest of us, all love to read your comments  as well, so that we can visit and share your words of the week!

My first word this week I came across when completing my morning wake-up brain teaser, on the ‘JigZone’ website. The site offers a daily jigsaw, which can usually be completed within 5-10 minutes and where you can compare your solve times either simply against the clock, or against fellow puzzlers. I usually log on just after 6am, when the new puzzle of the day is added, a great way to give the ‘little grey cells’ a bit of a workout!

Carcinus maenas is a common littoral crab, generally referred to as the shore crab, green crab or European green crab. The shore crab feeds on invertebrates including worms, molluscs and crustaceans.

LITTORAL …

Relating to or situated on the shore of the sea or a lake.

A region lying along a shore.

My next couple of words, both come from the pen of Sherban Young, an excellent author in the genre of the ‘Mystery Caper’ and are taken from the second in the series of Enescu Fleet mysteries … ‘Fleeting Glance’

GOOMBAHS

Well you get the idea. Everyone knows you and I are goombahs. He probably sent the card to you to give to me.

GOOMBAH …

A companion or associate, especially an older friend who acts as a patron, protector, or adviser.

DRUTHERS

He had never been a fan of this namesake business and if he had had his druthers his cousin would have called his adopted child Wolfgang.

DRUTHERS …

One’s preference in a matter.

My final word this week, I came across on the ‘Twitter’ profile of Amodini Sharma, over at ‘Review Room’. I must admit that I struggled to even pronounce the word, let alone guess at its meaning and I was therefore suitably surprised when I came across the definition … Can’t wait to try dropping this one into a conversation!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
