May I Have a Word?

More words… in part because it’s a heat wave and I’m languishing, and in another part because I’ve got a list that’s hitting a nice ripe length.

  • spruce- Both a noun (the evergreen tree) and a verb (to spruce up)
  • philtrum- I used to confuse philtrum and clavicle, when I was young and foolish
  • strum- guitar onomatopoeia
  • sphagnum
  • sorghum
  • obsolescence
  • belonging- You can have a sense of belonging and you can also have belongings. Belong-ing.
  • badinage- Nothing to do with badgers.
  • doughty- Nothing to do with dough.
  • spume
