Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love. Feel free to get creative!
I found this meme over at BermudaOnion’s blog. This is my first time, but I knew I wanted to do this after reading The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams. The protagonist has a love of words, which I share.
Definition: To offer congratulations.
I first read this word in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. I’ve been in love with it ever since.
What are some of your favorite words?
