Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words today are taken from the book: Marking Time .

1. Matrilineal- inheriting or determining descent through the female line.

2. Mongers- someone who purchases and maintains an inventory of goods to be sold.

3. Animatronic- the construction of robots to look like animals.

  1. Hi Mary Ann,

    The only one of your words that I knew this week was 'animatronic' and I know this word so well, because of the many visits we have made to Disney World over the last twenty or so years!

    Thanks for sharing all your words, they were interesting to read about.

  2. Matrilineal made perfect sense once I saw the definition.

  3. Mongers is interesting, I've heard specifically of a "fishmonger" but didn't know monger could be used for sellers of other goods. Nice words!
