Wondrous Words Wednesday #5

Hello Friends,

wondrous2

While reading, we come across many new words that we don’t know about. We don’t always care about to look for their meaning. Fantasy fiction books like Harry Potter, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland are full of such word marvels.

“Wondrous Words Wednesday”, a very interesting meme from Bermuda Onion is to celebrate the new words that we have encountered while reading.


This word is from the novel “Animal Farm” by George Orwell.

And so within five minutes of their invasion they were in ignominious retreat by the same way as they had come, with a flock of geese hissing after them and pecking at their calves all the way.

ignominious / ɪɡnəˈmɪnɪəs / adjective

deserving or causing public disgrace or shame.

 

What do you think people?
