Word Nerd: Places
Oh, the places you’ll go or at least get to know with this batch of terms.
firth: a long, narrow indentation of the seacoast.
wynd: a narrow street or alley.
peregrinate: to walk or travel by foot; journey.
saltigrade: move by leaping.
wampish: to wave about or flop to and fro.
estivate: to spend the summer, as at a specific place or in a certain activity.
I knew two of them today; typically, I don’t know any. You must be easing up for the slow kids in your class. 😊
Ooh, which ones, Pete?
peregrinate has always been a favorite
Yes, I can see that. You are definitely on a journey.
Wynd and wampish. It’s funny how you can go 63 years without being familiar with a word and then see it twice in one week. I looked up wampish the other day when it was in a book I was reading.
Wampish is the best word, I love it! I am goign to make you I flop around so I can bring it into conversation.
Wampish is a beaut. Somehow have to scootch this into a sentence soon.
Sccotch is a nice word too!
Great words! I didn’t know any of them, but now I wish to saltigrade through life.
Don’t you already 😉
For some reason, I want to speak these words with a Scottish burr. Perhaps because the Firth of Forth instantly came to mind. Ach, I’d love to peregrinate there, to saltigrade along that salty sea and estivate beside its estuaries.
Yes, I would like to hear you present a Scottish monologue with these as well. Your next video project, perhaps?
If only Sean Connery were still alive.
Alan Cummings, perhaps or David Tennant, perhaps?
Braw choices both, aye.
