It's Vocab Nerd time again!
Wondrous Words Wednesday is hosted by Bermudaonion each week. It's an opportunity to share new words you've encountered in your reading, or highlight words that you particularly enjoy.
Here are three of my favorites new-to-me words from recent reads. All definitions from Dictionary.com.
1. tintinnabulation. (This was used as one of the character's passwords in Feed by Mira Grant)
the ringing or sound of bells.
2. temblor. "I sucked in large gulps of air in an attempt to still the temblor erupting from within me." (From The Mistaken by Nancy S. Thompson)
a tremor; earthquake.
3. crepitate. "A minute later the Marsten House loomed ahead of them, dark and crepitating, and Royal felt the first thread of real fear worm its way into his belly." (From 'Salem's Lot by Stephen King)
verb (used without object), crep·i·tat·ed, crep·i·tat·ing.
