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 The Missionary by William Carmichael and David Lambert:
Necrotize: To undergo necrosis or cause to necrose.
So that description didn't help much as I had to look up necrosis: the death of one or more cells in the body, usually within a localized area, as from an interruption of the blood supply to that part.
Here is how necrotize was used on page 29:
"There's a particularly stubborn bacterial form of necrotizing pnemonia known as MRSA working its way through Caracas's children."
This is turning out to be more of an action packed book than I ever suspected. I will hopefully be posting my review soon!
