Five New Words

Edgar Allen Poe was in the Guinness Book of Records for largest vocabulary. Take inspiration from him and have a perusal at these five words I've learnt this week:

1) Flaneurial. (To move at a slow pace).

2) Scintilla. (A minute particle, spark or trace).

3) Splenetic. (Irritable, peevish, spiteful).

4) Aesthete. (A person with refined sensibility towards the artistic).

5) Bibelots. (A small object of curiosity, beauty or rarity).

  1. I quite like 'flaneurial'...seeing as I like to move at an incredibly slow pace. Thank you for teaching me some new words! :)
