Wondrous Words #425

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.  I found this word while reading Miss Jane by Brad Watson:

sibilant: “He hardly heard their sibilant voices just inside the house.”

Sibilant is an adjective for making a hissing sound

2.  I found this new-to-me word on my health insurance’s blog.

revuelto:  The article featured a healthy idea for breakfast: Asparagus Revuelto.

Of course I knew asparagus, but not revuelto. I learned revuelto is Spanish for scrambled, as in scrambled eggs. In the case of Asparagus Revuelto, most of the recipes I googled used at least 8 eggs, asparagus, garlic, cubed bread, and a little chorizo. It is delicious!

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

  1. I think sibilant was used in the Harry Potter books. Revuelto is new to me.

    I didn’t know either word, but I would love to make Asparagus Revuelto. I like all the ingredients you mentioned.

  3. Yvonne says:

    Asparagus Revuelto sounds good.

    Good words! I also know the term sibilant as a linguistic description of the sound in a word like “hiss.” I think the Spanish word “revuelto” hasn’t really made it into English yet, but maybe it will eventually appear in English dictionaries, not just culinary Spanish-English ones.
