Bermudaonion asks you to share new words that you have learned during your reading adventures in the last week. Feel free to join in the fun!
Here are a few new words that I learned as I was reading Beach Trip by Cathy Holton:
Psilocybin: (sĭl'ə-sī'bĭn,) A hallucinogenic compound obtained from certain mushrooms.
Here is how psilocybin was used on page 97:
She had once written a college paper on the Mazatec people in Mexico and their use of the hallucinogenic psilocybin mushrooms in religious rituals.
Masochistic: (mās'ə-kĭz'əm) The deriving of pleasure, or the tendency to derive pleasure, from being humiliated or mistreated, either by another or by oneself.
Here is how masochistic was used on page 126:
She'd take Brigg's side like she'd always done, like she'd taken the side of the masochistic Charlotte Hampton all those years ago.
So have you learned any new words in your reading adventures this last week?
