Q:  What is the biggest word you've seen used in a book lately-that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition and book too.

In reading the Kingmaker's Daughter the word I had to get the definition for was :
Coltish- Energetic but awkward in one's movements or behavior.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier.

    Have a fantastic Friday :)

  2. I have seen this one alot, and always knew the meaning, but to me, its a natural word for me, as I been around , and raised many horses, and that's where the word came from, as young colts are akward and clumsy at times, too long of limbs, ect, so its used to describe awkward humans as well, as you know. :)
    Good choice.

  4. That question fits in perfectly with WWW. I guess coltish is related to horses.
