Wondrous Words Wednesday — 8 Comments

  1. I got escaladed because my mind was thinking escalate, escalator, i.e. going up. Sedulously is very interesting. It also seems strange that they would be eating their treats sedulously/deliberately in the squallid streets. It seems yucky to me but I know things were different in those days.

  2. Hi Joy,

    A couple of great words and yet someone else who has highlighted ‘Olde English’ words this week.

    I am not sure whether some of these old words really fit the context in which they were used, or whether it is our modern day way of thinking which changes the concept so drastically.

    You really seem to be getting your money’s worth out of this book, I must take a look at it sometime.

    Great interesting post.
