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 is a new word that I learned while reading My Antonia by Willa Cather:
Quinsy: a suppurative inflammation of the tonsils; suppurative tonsillitis; tonsillar abscess.
Here is how quinsy was used on page 34:
The next day I came down with an attack of quinsy, which kept me in the house for nearly two weeks.
So what kind of new words did you learn this week?
