Wondrous Words #167
I’m back tp Wondrous Words Wednesday after being off for a couple weeks. I always enjoy discovering new words.
A word-book I keep on my desk is Grammer Girl’s 101 Words to Sound Smart. I like to pick it up about once a week and “adopt” one of the words. (I’m not sure I sound any smarter but it is fun to do.)
This week I adopted inchoate. (Pronounced in-ko-it.) Inchoate is an adjective meaning just begun and not fully formed or developed. To use it in a sentence: “We still have a inchoate plan for our Fall road trip.”
I’m happy to share the word with anyone who wants to adopt it too.
One other new word that has come up this past week is scullery. One part of my son’s house is the old kitchen and they have been referring to it as the scullery. I wasn’t positice that was the right usage for the word, but it is. A scullery is a small kitchen or room at the back of a house used for washing dishes and other dirty household work.
