Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bermuda Onion where participants share new (to us) words we encounter in our reading.
This is my first time participating, I always forget to write down the words.
These come from The Nonesuch by Georgette Heyer:
animadversions - 1. Strong criticism. 2. A critical or censorious remark.
fustian (which word I have read a number of times but never bothered to find out what it meant) - 1. a stout fabric of cotton and flax.
2. a fabric of stout twilled cotton or of cotton and low
quality wool, with a short nap or pile.
3. inflated or turgid language in writing or speaking.
