Chatterbox: Blab About Books

Weird or awesome words!
Hello, everyone. ...

Hello, everyone.

 

When reading old books we come across some unusual words. I think that they are super cool, and so when you come across some, share here!

HERE ARE A FEW THAT I HAVE ADORED:

wabbit: feeling exhausted.. XD

Bibble: to eat or drink noisily

xertz: to quench thrist greedily

brouhaha: an uproar (especialy in a sporting advent,  so you girls who don't like football, claim you want to get out such brouhaha of football ;))

Eriancous: someone who resembles a (drumroll pleaassse!:) a hedgehog. 

Yarborough: This refers to when you are playing a game of cards and the dealer deals a hand without any numbers above nine. This can really be unfortunate or great, depending on which game you are playing.

 

Well, thats the end folks. Lets see what you find!

Abibliophobia: a person who is afraid of running out of things to read ( me!! ) 

Nudiustertian: the day before yesterday 

Donnybrook: a riot

Discombobulating: out of sorts 

that's it for now! I love expanding my vocabulary especially with words these! This is a great thread thanks!

Bdellium : A fragrant resin by a number of trees related to myrrh, often used in purfume.
Spindiddly : Not a real word, but I found it in a book, and I love it. The character, Felictity, makes up a meaning for it: Beyond awesome. (The book is A Snicker Of Magic. It has a bunch of good words in it!)
Here is a song that has a bunch of cool words in it: Crazy ABCs by The Barenaked Ladies. It's really funny and good!

Ooh, I never knew that Solander was a word. I've read a book with a character whose last name was Solander and they did make maps so that's really interesting. Also @... I never knew that bibble was a real word so that's cool!
