Wondrous Words Wednesday is hosted by Bermudaonion’s Weblog. Kathy says: “Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading.”
Rick Steves includes a list of Irish-Yankee Vocabulary near the back of Rick Steves’ Ireland. Here are the words that seem most vital to our travel (keeping in mind that my husband gets hives if he eats red meat).
black pudding: sausage made from pig’s blood
casualty: emergency room
first floor: second floor (one floor above ground)
guards: police (Garda)
