Wondrous Words #409

WWWEvery week I join Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog to post about new words we’ve discovered. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday.


I like to watch the Miss Fisher series on Netflix. I saw that the show is based on a book series. I checked it out and found this word in the publisher’s blurb for Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood.

diamant: “She — of green eyes, diamant garters and outstanding outfits — is embroiled in . . . “

The dictionary insists that the word has an e at the end, making the word diamante. It means decorated with artificial jewels. The clothing on the show is one of the reasons I love watching the show. I can’t say I’ve seen any diamante garters, but frankly, I wasn’t looking that closely.


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