Wondrous Words Wednesday 8-19-15

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.

Desultory - marked by lack of definite plan, regularity.

Philippic - a discourse or declamation full of bitter condemnation : tirade.

Geek on,

  1. I know I've seen desultory before but couldn't define it. I wonder if anyone uses it when they speak. Great words today!

  2. I too have seen desultory in reading. I probably even looked it up at the time, but I could not have given a definition. Sometimes it takes several tries for a word to stick in my aging brain.

  3. Ok, I was way off on desultory and needed this review. Thank you. I wonder where, or who, Phillippic came from?

  4. Philippic was new to me. I don't think I've ever seen it in a sentence.
