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.”
\ yoo-lij–uh-nuh s \, adjective;
- swampy; slimy; of marshes or water-logged places
