Words of the Day

Since I have not done any posts for a couple of days I shall give you two today to compensate. Both are from The Works of Robert Louis Stevenson. The first is wonderfully weird (note the alliteration) and the second just just sounds very intelligent.

Today's Word No.1:


1. A gossip
2. A chattering and flighty sort of person

Sentence example: She was a flibbertigibbet of a girl, always chattering away when she was meant to be concentrating.

Today's Word No. 2:


1. Terrestrial
2. Underneath the moon
3. Mundane or worldly

Sentence example: His playing chess was a sublunary pleasure he liked to have after a hard day at work.
