Word Nerd Confessions: August
This month’s offerings contain a shared element. Can you guess it?
And to continue:
Did you detect the shared element? Pop in your guess in the comments and I shall reveal after the first correct guess.
Now let’s go for some creative lexiconnery. Your challenge is to devise a sentence (or two) with all of the featured vocabulary. Sure you can do it. Fine, I’ll give it a whirl to start things off.
“My marvelous mavourneen,” Gladys gushed to her husband, the honorable Mayor Cecil Pettigord. “That stemwinder you delivered to the city council on raising parking fines certainly proved your bailiwick for speeches. My darling, it was a regular apotheosis, an opuscule of rhetoric genius.”
The honorable mayor harrumphed in false modesty, little realizing the council, and especially the up and coming reporter of the council meeting beat, considered the mayoral paroxysm to be one of bathos, a jumble of political galmatias, and proved the mayor was merely an ignominy, even a nudnik as an elected official.
Now, it’s your turn. All ten words. You can do it.
