Wondrous Words T#401

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 new word in a blurb for Mortal Fear by Greg Iles:

1. sysops: Only “sysops” like Harper – the high priests of the system – know and see all.

Sysops are systems operators.

I heard this word while watfching an interview with a reporter from The Washington Post:

2. bifurcate: “I believe this issue was trying to bifurcate the campaign.

I should have figured this out from the bi. Bifurcate means divide into two branches or forks.

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