Wondrous Words #157

Welcome to Wondrous Words Wednesday. I only have a couple of words this week. They are two left over from my last short story post: Chefoo, China by Thornton Wilder

1. tiffin: There was leisure for talk at the clubs on the Bunds, at the eternal tiffins, and teas, and dinners.

A tiffin is a light meal, especially lunch.

2. fecundity: We were filled with wonder at nature’s fecundity.

Fecundity is an adjective meaning fertile or capable of producing an abundance of offspring.
