Here’s how it works. Find a new word(s)? Blog about it/them and then link up at the host blog.
Here are my words for the week.
1. Eluvium (n.) – sand or silt, the stuff often deposited at the end of the river. In a grander sense, it refers to the sand or silt gods create stuff from. Co-Cap used this in a poem at our biweekly writer’s thing. I knew he was useful for something. (Don’t tell him I said that.)
2. Glaive (n.) – a European polearm weapon I already knew this, but someone mentioned it in conversation, and I was reminded of its awesomeness, both as a word and as an object.
