Wondrous Words Wednesday-Nov. 4


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!

I found a new word this week while reading Made in the U.S.A. by Billie Letts, and the definition was actually included in the sentence:

Tonitrophobia-and here is how it was used on page 271:
The doctor who examined her had explained that tonitrophobia-fear of thunder-could, in extreme cases, cause seizures and, though extremely rare, could result in death.

I really enjoyed this book and I will be meeting with my book club this evening to discuss it.  I can tell you right now that you can expect a positive review from me on this one!

Yikes I can die!
Well it's mostly the lighting that scares me

Snowbell said...

Cool word! I think my dog used to have tonitrophobia (and so does my spellchecker)
Here are my words

My dog has tonitrophobia if she's outside during an electrical storm. Thanks for participating!

Margot at Joyfully Retired said...

I knew all this was possible. I just didn't know there was a name for it. Good word.

TexasRed said...

There's a word for the fear of thunder? Awesome!

Amy said...

Fantastic word! There are so many phobias and they all have their own word which always sound so interesting. I don't know any people with tonitrophobia but I have known several dogs with it, seriously!

Great word, Jo-Jo
Thanks!

April said...

What a fun idea! Now that is a word I have never seen or heard of before! lol

Lisa said...

Phobias have some great names! That's an excellent new word.

My words are here.
