Wondrous Words Wednesday (14th May)

ImageWondrous 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!

 

I’ve been meaning to join in this meme for a while, and am finally remembering to do it. Both my words this week I discovered when reading The Conduct of Life by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Phrenology – the detailed study of the shape and size of the cranium as a supposed indication of character and mental abilities.

Inosculate – to join by intertwining or fitting closely together.

  1. Phrenology often pops up in the historical fiction I like to read, inosculate also sounds like a medical term!
