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 and book, too.
A. Wow, this is a good question. I can't think of a "big" word. I'm usually pretty good at figuring out meanings based on the context that they are used in.
Right now, I'm reading Ours is Just a Little Sorrow by Gwen Hayes, a novella with steampunk elements. So there is a lot of "futuristic slang." There are a few words in it that I haven't heard before. One is stalwart.
- strongly and stoutly built; sturdy and robust
- strong and brave; valiant; a stalwart knight
- firm, steadfast, uncompromising; a stalwart supporter of the U.N.
Never heard it before, but it's a good word for to describe a hero in a romance novel, eh?
