This week Words on Wednesday is brought to you by a favorite of mine, Dictionary.com and its “Word of the Day” feature.
Here are some of this past week’s gems:
foison, noun [foi-zuh n]: abundance, plenty
flumadiddle, noun [fluhm-uh-did-l]: utter nonsense [Dying to find a way to incorporate in an essay or my book. Love this word!]
telegnosis, noun [tel-uh-noh–sis]: supernatural or occult knowledge
dragoman, noun [drag–uh-muh n]: (in the near East) a professional interpreter
