I’m choosing angular

For Paula’s Pick a Word Thursday Special. This is partly because there are two words in Paula’s list that I’ve never heard before and had to look up.

Algid, Algid is a rather cold and lonely word, etymologically speaking-it’s the only word in any of the dictionaries we publish that comes from the Latin word algēre, meaning “to feel cold.” From Merriam-Webster.

The other one I looked up was even stranger and I struggled to find a clear definition.

Auricomous seems to mean having golden hair, or a fluid that will colour hair golden.

So, kudos to Paula for unearthing these gems, I’ll certainly be algid in the next few days, but I don’t think I’ll try the auricomous look any time soon.

Now you know why I picked the easy option of angular. There are angles within angles here.

And it’s always worth looking up for a few more, especially in the Uffizi.

If you’d like to join Paula she’ll be happy to see you!

  1. Now, I am really happy I had “angular” as choice cause it yielded some fabulous shots, like the ones on your page. Well done dear Gilly. What a fabulous and beautiful captured example!

  2. I agree, I had to look up these words too – where on earth does Paula get them from? Reading a dictionary? Anyway I’m going to go with festive. At least I know what that means. And I really like your angle on the challenge 😉

I would love to hear from you . . .
