Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme at Bermuda Onion’s where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love. Feel free to get creative! If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

Inosculate – to join by intertwining or fitting closely together.
