While reading Princess Academy by Shannon Hale I found these two words:
1. scree: Rock debris was strewn and stacked and piled deeper than Miri could dig, and scree littered the slopes that touched the village lanes.
Scree is a mass of small loose stones that form or cover a slope on a mountain.
2. interlocutor: “You must know your rank and that of your interlocutor,” said Olana.
Interlocutor seemed familiar to me but I couldn’t recall it. Olana is referring to a person who takes part in a dialogue or conversation.
