I am participating in Wondrous Words Wednesday over at BermudaOnion.net. Every week we get together and present the 'new to us' words we have come across in our reading!
I am reading a compendium of five P.G. Wodehouse novels (The 'Jeeves" books) in one giant book that I got from the library. This week's offerings are from this book.
Gyves - shackles (Our protagonist, Bertie, had a bit of trouble with the law.)
Coronet - This is actually a crown worn by a peer of the realm, but in more modern times it became a word used to describe the peer, himself, and not necessarily the actual crown.
