Wondrous Words #399

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.

In an editorial in the New Yotk Times by David Brooks I found these two new words:

1. infantalist: At base, Trump is an infantalist.

Infantalist is a person whose behavior is childish.

2. leitmotif: Immaturity is becoming the dominant note of his presidency, lack of self-control his leitmotif.

Leitmotif is a noun meaning a recurrent theme throughout a musical or literary composition, associated with a particular person, idea, or situation.


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

  1. I think I could have figured infantalist out from the context. It’s the perfect word for him!

  2. Two good words, I agree with Kathy on the word infantalist.
