Wondrous Words Wednesday 6-24-15

Welcome to this week’s Wondrous Words Wednesday, hosted by The Bermuda Onion.

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.

Quire (n.) - a collection of 24 or sometimes 25 sheets of paper of the same size and quality: one twentieth of a ream.

Lypophrenia (n.) – a sense or feeling of sorrow or sadness without knowing why

Logophile (n.) – a lover of words

  2. Those are all new to me! Does quire only refer to paper? Talk about an exact word.

    1. I think quire is also archaic for choir.
