It has been a while since a Wednesday Word has popped up on the radar but here it is.
I was reading a text book called "The Science of Spelling" the other day. It is actually a very good book (although a bit dry) and has some very useful information. But I digress. On page ONE I read a word that I didn't know. When you start reading a book and you are finding unfamiliar words on the first page or two this is not a good sign. In fact, if one of my students was struggling with words in the first few pages I would probably tell them to choose another book! So, don't I feel clever (note the facetious tone)! The word and definition are below. If you are one of those people who actually uses this word in everyday conversation, I have one thing to say to you..."find another word because no one knows what on earth you are talking about!"
