Every 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.
