Thanks to Bermudaonion’s Weblog for hosting this weekly event. Head over there to play along.
I only ran across one new-to-me word this week. It’s from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith.
manky– inferior and worthless
“to attend a demonstration of a new carriage that boasted of being impervious to attacks by the manky dreadfuls.”
Any new words for you this week?
The “manky dreadfuls”? I love it! I use the word manky although I didn’t know it had such a specific meaning.
I read this word a while ago.
Wondrous Words Wednesday
Manky is new to me. It actually sounds like author made it up just for that occasion. But then, that’s their prerogative.
There were a ton in my last read, Catch-22, but I didn’t get a chance to write them down. Don’t think I’ve heard of “manky” before!
I work with a bunch of manky people.
“Manky”…now there’s a word I can use!
Oooh, I think manky is my new favorite word! I will definitely be using this one! Thanks for participating!
