Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words today are taken from a book I just finished reading, so I thought I would share them with you.

1. misogynist- A person who hates, dislikes, mistrusts, or mistreats women.

2. hypothetical- Of, relating to.

3. parabolic- dish or mirror, a reflective device used to collect or project energy such as light, sound or radio waves.

  1. Hi,

    I knew your first couple of words and although I have heard of 'parabolic', I was unsure as to its exact definition, so thanks for sharing that one with me.

  2. Parabolic sounds like a great word to use in a metaphor or description, say, to describe someone's mind and how they collect information and then beam it back, concentrated and more powerful.

  4. Great words. I did not know parabolic and was way off on what I thought it meant.

  5. Yay. I knew all your words today. A rare achievement for me. Although parabolic doesn't come up all that much in my day to day life.
