Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading and is hosted by Bermuda Onion.
  1. glaikit - "I'm not completely glaikit." An adjective (Scottish and N. English) that means stupid, foolish or thoughtless.
  2. caitiff - "Cads. Caitiffs. Chickens. Cowards. Craven -"  Noun archaic - a contemptible or cowardly person.


  1. Interesting new words, thanks! for sharing.

  2. Your two new words are new to me too.

  3. Don't ask me to spell either of these new-to-me,too, words!

  4. I love Scottish words, glaikit is an excellent concept. Haver is my favourite Scottish word that I know, and use.

  5. I think I've seen caitiff, but I had no idea what it meant. Thanks for playing along!

  6. This is my first time playing along and am beginning to realize there are a load of words that I don't know!!

    thanks for dropping by and commenting, much appreciated!!
