Weird Words in Z
My mother is culling her book collection. I’ve inherited an aged copy of Mrs. Byrne’s Dictionary.
Search for unusual words, use them in a sentence to remember their meaning and expand vocabulary! I choose words that appeal to me, not necessarily the most obscure, though there are multitudes of those.
I’m starting at the end with “Z”.
Zax noun ~ a tool for trimming roofing tiles
Zenzizenzizenzic noun~ the eighth power of a number
Zneesy adjective~ freezing, frosty (also spelled “znuzy”)
Sentence: Careful on that slippery roof on this zneesy day; you still have the zenzizenzizenzic of 2 (256) tiles to trim with your zax, before your work is complete!
How would you use these words in a sentence?
