Wondrous Words Wednesday - "The Lantern"
I just finished reading "The Lantern" by Deborah Lawrenson. GREAT book, by the way. It is set in a to-die-for hamlet in Provence. A full review is coming, but for now, the words.
This post has been prepared so as to participate in Wondrous Words Wednesday a fun meme over at BermudaOnion.net where we discuss new-to-us words that we have encountered in our reading that week.
Here are words that I looked up (on Dictionary.com) from the book, "The Lantern":
SUSURRATION - susurration \soo-suh-RAY-shun\ , noun: A whispering sound; a soft murmur. . . .the soft susurration of the wind through a stand of whistling thorn.
ALEMBIC - a·lem·bic [uh-lem-bik] noun 1.a vessel with a beaked cap or head, formerly used in distilling. (Note: This makes sense because they are harvesting lavender and making an essence with it.)
