Every week I join Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog to post about new words we’ve discovered. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday.
I was reading an article about how literary critics have analyzed the words used by Jane Austen to see why she is so popular after more than 20 years when I found two new words.
1. welter: Emma does not know her own heart, but the welter of intensifiers creates a sense of insisting too much, that not all is as it seems.
Welter can be both a noun and a verb. In this sentence it’s a noun so welter means a large number of items in no order; a confused mass
2. indubitable: The change was indubitable.
Indubitable is adjective meaning impossible to doubt; unquestionable.
That’s all for me this week. Don’t forget to visit Kathy for more Wondrous Words Wednesday.
