That sounds like some tough reading - both of those words are new to me.
Both words were new to me. Good ones.
Hi Mary Ann,Archimedes Claw sounds like a great epic story, although I think it would be too 'heavy going' for me.I should imagine that there are many words that you could have selected from this book, that would 'stump' us all. I know your two words this week had me flummoxed.Thanks for sharingYvonne
So, do I now finally know the origin of the phrase "Aquiline features"? I bet Aquila is where that comes from. Vexillum I was familiar with, because I love to study heraldry and flags, and the study of flags is called "vexillology". Apparently, that makes me a "vexillophile," according to Wiktionary. :)
Aquila sounded familiar but Vexillium - new for me..
Aquila is a brand of men's shoes in Australia. I would never have guessed it's origins.
