Follow Friday (13)

Q: What is the BIGGEST word you’ve seen used in a book lately – that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition and book too.

Most of the big words that I’ve came across in a book were in Dracula, but the most recent one was phosphorescent, which I came across in The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter. It means to radiate light without burning. I think.

Happy Friday!

    I like the word phosphorescent…and it's cool to see marine animals on a nature channel that radiate light. Weird and wonderful 🙂
