Amazing Adjectives, Number Thirteen!

March 7, 2017

Here’s another gem.  I really love my “highly selective” books (dictionary, thesaurus, golden adjectives) “for the extraordinarily literate.”  Here’s a sentence using a word I have never before encountered . . . but may start using myself: “An unusually long rainy season made the region especially uliginous that year.”

uliginous

yoo-lijuh-nuh s \, adjective;

  1.  swampy; slimy; of marshes or water-logged places
