In a effort to up my vocabulary, not really on purpose but to figure out what some of the computer generated words mean on my Scrabble game, I find myself looking up the meaning of the following words. You may already know them and use them regularly but as for me.. they are somewhat new.
I will say that I have brought the words Quango and Fatling into my vocabulary using them quite often over the last week from my previous "what's that word?" post. Mostly because they make me laugh.
Here are a few that I have written down since I last shared new words with you.
Foist: to force someone to accept (something that is not good or not wanted)
Zechin: sequin (I wonder if there is cool word for glitter! My sister Marty would say, "yes... crap")
Jihad: any vigorous, emotional crusade for an idea or principle.
