When our sons were young, I read aloud to them a great deal. We often would encounter new, unknown-to-us words as we adventured through books. So I decided to put together our own little dictionary entitled, “Very Remarkable Words,” where any of us were welcome to alphabetically list new, interesting (and often astonishing words) we would stumble across in our reading. I still add to our little book – even though my sons are now adults. Samples of words in our book are; slumgullion (stew made of leftovers) and flump (to plump down suddenly or heavily). I discovered a new entry for our book this week that I thought worth discussing with you today.
