Save-A-Word Saturday (3)

Save-a-Word Saturday

Welcome to my third installment of Save-A-Word Saturday! A bit of short one this week, but I’m quite fond of the word!

The rules run thusly:

1. Create a lovely blog post that links back to this one. The easiest way to do that would be to grab the code under our pretty Save-a-Word Saturday button. Just copy and paste it into the HTML part of your blog.

2. Pick an old word you want to save from extinction to feature in your blog post. It really must be an old word, not just a big one. We are trying to save lovely archaisms, not ugly giants (for example, “Dihydrogen Monoxide” is not an acceptable choice). Luciferous Logolepsy is a great database of lovely words if you’re having trouble coming up with something on your own.

3. Provide a definition of your word. Use your word in a sentence (or even a short paragraph) vaguely related to the theme we have chosen this week. You may also add visual or musical interpretations of your word or your sentence. In fact, add anything that moves your creative spirit.

4. Add your post to the linky list below (it’s down there somewhere). Then hop to as many other blogs as you can in search of as many wonderful words as possible!

5. Use as many of the words as you can on the people in your life. Do leave us a note or add something to your own post to let us all know what wonderful old word you whipped out to befuddle your friends and relations.

This week’s theme is:
Music
My word for the week is:
Murklins    adj. – in the dark
She roamed murklins, desperate to find the source of the disturbing music that filled the room.

Like I said, a short one this week…one of my wisdom teeth is growing at the moment, and my face hurts enough that doing much of anything is just not on the table! Methinks today will be a sit on the couch and read/edit sort of day…if only there wasn’t such a thing as housework!

    I like that word. I really think this one could come in handy! Thanks 🙂
  2. Ooh! That's a good one.

    I hope your teeth feel better!

  3. It's funny to think how they've come up with some of these words. I never would have guessed the meaning of that one! I do pray your tooth begins to act it's age. 🙂

    I know, I definitely have a new appreciation for teething babies!

    I loved this word when I saw it. And yes, it's strange how people make up words for scenarios like this!

    There's aches and pains, and then there's a toothache–major ouch!

    An interesting word to complete the natural hattrick. Cheers
