Every 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 while reading Sworn To Silence by Linda Castillo. Prepare yourself. This is icky.
exsanguination: “The cause of death is exsanguination,” said the coroner.
Exsanguination (ekˌsaNGɡwəˈnāSHən) is the action of draining a person, animal, or organ of blood. It could also be a severe loss of blood.
