Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words are taken from the book Losing St. Christopher  by David-Michael Harding.

Syllabary- A set of written characters representing syllables, serving as an alphabet.

Lolled- To recline or lean in a relaxed, lazy manner. To lounge.

  1. Hi Mary Ann

    'Losing St. Christopher' sounds like a real piece of literary fiction and social commentary and the critical acclaim it has received, has been amazing.

    'Lolling Around', is something we Brits do a lot of, so this word and phrase is one which is still in constant use over here.

    I already have my next WWW post on the edit pages and sure enough 'Syllabary' is included in one of my definitions ..... What are the odds of that happening with so rare a word?

    I think that I may still go ahead and use the word I have in mind, as it doesn't come from the same book and is only briefly mentioned in the definition.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Yvonne

  2. I've been known to loll a time or two in my life. Syllabary is totally new to me.

  4. Just realised I do know loll I am guilty of that myself at times. Syllabary is a new one.
