Since the beginning of November, when I started this weekly post, we’ve had 15 words – 8 adjectives, 6 nouns and one lone verb. 11 of the words came from historical romance novels I read, which perhaps suggests that I need to read more contemporary novels or our modern vocabulary is seriously lacking.
Either way, I’m having a lot of fun learning new words and I hope you are too!
