This week, one of the words came from an unexpected source…
From Reality Check at the Toronto Star,
Castigating (in the second of the larger paragraphs): To punish, criticize severely, to reprimand severely.
My other source, was much more expected…
From In The Skin Of A Lion,
Ablutions (pg 43): The act of washing or cleansing the body.
Supine (pg 49): To lay back, be lethargic or passive. It’s apparently an old word.
Feldspar (pg 53): Any of a large group of rock-forming minerals that, together, make up about 60% of the earth's outer crust. The feldspars are all aluminum silicates of the alkali metals sodium, potassium, calcium and barium.
This one was a little technical.
