Expand Your Vocabulary

I know I'm a little behind with this one, but I have had more exciting/pressing posts lately :). Alright here are the words from The Heretic Queen.
  • Faience – (n) glazed earthenware or pottery, esp. a fine variety with highly colored designs
  • Wadis – (pl. n) A valley, gully, or streambed in northern Africa and southwest Asia that remains dry except during the rainy season
There were other words that I didn't know but there was a glossery of some of them in the back of the book.

  1. Very nice post, I can not wait to read "The Heretic Queen" Thanks for the Side bar link!

  2. a glossary in the back is perfect, instead of googling the word.

  3. hmmm I need to remember all the new words I come across, huh? Which are many sometimes!
    These were good, thanks for sharing :)
    Hope you are doing well!

  4. These certainly are strange...wadis? I'm always one for new words! Thanks:)
