Wondrous Words #415

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.

  1.  As I heard on the news:

synchronic: “There are a number of news items that can only be called synchronic.

Synchonic ( siNGˈkränik ) means concerned with something, especially a language, as it exists at one point in time

2.  This word came from a blurb for a new book, Disrobed by Syl Tang. I’ll be reviewing the book next week for a TLC Book Tour.

presage: Why do banker’s wives sell off their clothes and how does that presage a recession?

Presage (ˈpresijprəˈsāj) is a verb  that means to be a sign or warning that something, typically something bad.

  1. I think I could have figured out presage from the context but synchronic would have baffled me.

  2. Mary Ann Langan says:

    I heard of them , but didn’t quite know the meaning.

    Margot, I did not know either of these words! I hope to be able to remember them. 🙂
