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 I learned while I was reading The Cost of Dreams by Gary Stelzer:
Oligarchy: a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few.
Here is how oligarchy was used on page 12:
He had finally spun out of the oligarchy's control and ordered the shooting of Indians thought be under the influence of foreigners, over the age of twelve, and caught in traditional native wear, liabilities that the village from which the siblings had traveled only learned about too late.
So did you learn any new words in your reading adventures?
