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.
- tocsin - "The tocsin rang out, warning us of the approaching tornado." Noun - an alarm bell.
- eidetic - "He searched his eidetic brain for what they needed." Adjective - commonly referred to as photographic memory.
Darn, I should have know eidetic, but I'd forgotten it. I obviously don't have an eidetic brain. Tocsin is totally new to me.ReplyDelete
I knew tocsin (French word and I'm French), but eidetic not at all !ReplyDelete
I wish I had a eidetic brain, thanks! for sharing These.ReplyDelete
Both words are new to me. I also wish I had even half an eidetic brain.ReplyDelete
GREAT WORDS...AWESOME BLOG.ReplyDelete
Stopping by from Bermdaonion's site...so happy to have found you.
These are new to me. Excellent choices!ReplyDelete
Both are new to me too, and given that I don't have an eidetic brain I'm sure I'll have forgotten them quite soon....ReplyDelete
