The WordPress suggestion today is one I responded to before, so this time I shall tell you about the kindness of a special English teacher, Miss Street. Miss Street was a dedicated teacher and inspired me to have a pencil and paper by the bed, and a dictionary. As a consequence I’m constantly coming across words that either I’ve heard and not really understood, or are totally new. Reading constantly unfolds new ideas and words. I always remember this teacher when I write the words down.
Here are a just a few recent words:
Invoilably: that must not be violated, kept free from violence, or treated as if sacred.
Peripatetic: walking or travelling about, itinerant.
Malfeasance: the doing of an unlawful act.
