U...is for

Following on again with Toni's A-Z, "a...is for" meme, this week's letter is U

U..is for uliginous.

Bet you've never heard that before.
I know I never have. 
And if you have then all bets are off.

Uliginous, which I found in my dictionary, means>>>>

oozy, muddy, moist

damp, wet,

swampy.

and here's another swamp, just because I like the skeleton.

U...is for uliginous.

  3. New one on me and it's not in our Random House dictionary either which is amazing. It's the type of word that rolls off the tongue so easily and I too love to find new words but not sure I would ever use this one. Well done, especially with that last pic.

  4. Thank you. I knew oligeanous (oily, greasy) but didn't know this one. It is wonderful to learn new things, even if I may never use it.

  5. I was going to say I knew that one, but it was EC's oleaginous I knew. Alas, dear Oleaginous, I knew thee well. I would have picked Underpants. I just would've.

  7. Delores; it does roll off the tongue quite well.

    Merlesworld; I probably won't either.

    Cassandra Louise; I'd like to see their faces as they all say "what? what?"

    Mimsie; I think it depends on which dictionary you look in. It is in my old Concise English Dictionary, also in my Crossword Dictionary which is essentially a Thesaurus, but it isn't in my Oxford English dictionary.

    Elephant's Child; I knew oligeanous too and I've never used it, but if I need it for a crossword it will be right there in my memory, just as uliginous now will be.

    Murr Brewster; I'd planned on doing Underwear, but Delores covered that in her April A-Z.

    Kymbo Whitford; then my work is done.

  8. Hi River,

    What a great word. I wonder whether I can squeeze that into a blog post?

    :-)

    Cheers

    The Wicked Writer; that picture is now my desktop background.
