Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

Since I've been at a loss for some "Q" words lately playing scrabble, I thought I would share some with you.

1. Quaff- Drink(something; esp. an alcoholic drink) heartily.

2. Qi- is frequently translated as life energy, life force.

3. Quagmire- an area of miry or boggy ground whose surface yields under the tread; a bog.

4. Qats- It is a tropical evergreen shrub that can primarily be found in Africa.


  1. I use qi in words with friends but had no idea what it means!

  2. Funny that you found two that don't have the expected u after the Q. I guess because they are both foreign.

    I didn't know Qats. I wonder how it's pronounced.

    I've usually heard Qi pronounced Chee and sometimes it's spelled Chi, which English speakers are more likely to pronounce correctly. I sometimes do a form of exercise called Qi Gong that comes from China. A little like yoga but with more fluid movement.

  3. Qats would certainly be useful in scrabble when you don't have a U. Quagmire is a great word. As is quaff.

  4. Bermudaonion- I didn't know there were so many.

    Joy weese Moll- I think they are foreign words.

    Louise- Very useful in scrabble.
