Q: What is the BIGGEST word you've seen used in a book lately - that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.

A: I can't think of any words I have had to look up lately. If I don't know the word, I can usually figure them out. Two words that come to mind I had to look up in the past (I had heard the words just never knew the definition...) were...

incredulous (ɪnˈkrɛdjʊləs)
— adj
( often foll by of ) not prepared or willing to believe(something); unbelieving

macabre (məˈkɑːbə, -brə) 
— adj
1. gruesome; ghastly; grim
2. resembling or associated with the danse macabre

I know they are not too huge of words, but I didn't remember ever using them and had to look up the actual definition. 

Whats your answer?

  2. Love both words especially is so fun to say! Old follower.

    Happy Friday!

  3. I've never been quite sure how to pronounce 'macabre' -- I guess it's supposed to be like 'mah-cob', but that just sounds too weird. I don't end up using it much.

  4. I don't usually memorize definitions either. I know the right context to use a word and can infer some sort of meaning to it. Which is usually enough anyway!
