Wondrous Words #391

WWWEvery week word-lovers post new words they’ve discovered while reading. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday and was created by Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog.

I found this word in an article on the Washington Post:

ubiquity:  “ . . . and that means a majority of people since most still get their news about what’s happening in Washington from TV, despite the ubiquity of digital.”

Ubiquity (yo͞oˈbikwədē) is a noun that means the fact of appearing everywhere or of being very common


I found this new word in Politico:

pyrrhic: “Even if the GOP repeal bill passes the House, it will be a Pyrrhic victory.

Pyrrhic  (ˈpirik) is an adjective  that refers to a victory that is won at too grerat a cost to have been worthwhile.


That’s all for me this week. Don’t forget to visit Kathy for more Wondrous Words Wednesday.

  1. I knew ubiquitous so I was able to figure out ubiquity. Pyrrhic is new to me and it seems like a word we’ll be able to get a lot of use out of it these days.

  2. Vicki says:

    Yea! A word I knew!

  3. Two new ones for me today.
