Well hello there, my dear readers! Welcome to another edition of ‘Words I am Curious About.” These are words that I found just today! while jumping around reading blogs… All of these words were found in posts of bloggers I admire. Join with me as I increase my vocabulary. Enjoy the definitions, supporting video (huh?) and a possibly helpful image from Google. Remember, try to use these words in a sentence today!
EPISTOLARY. A literary term, ie the Epistolary Novel; a novel whose story is told through letters of correspondence. [I should have attempted my own definition before looking it up. One of those that when you DO look it up, you think, “oh yea, I should have known this.”]
PETARD. an explosive device used to break down a gate or wall.
