Wondrous Words #413

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 was reading an article on Wikipedia about the author Rex Stout when I found this new-to-me word:

corpus: “The Nero Wolfe corpus was nominated Best Mystery Series of the Century . . .”

I should have know this from the context, but I looked it up. I learned that corpus means a collection of written texts, especially the entire works of a particular author or a body of writing on a particular subject.


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