Wondrous Words #416

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 word in Politico while reading about the various elections around the country.

vicennial: Like in past years, the vicennial ballot question has attracted odd coalitions of liberals and conservatives on both sides.

As you can guess from the sentence, a vicennial election is one that occurs every 20 years. I’d never heard of such a vote, but it’s part of New York state’s constitution.


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