Happy Wednesday — it’s time for some new words! You know how this works – share a few words from your current book that you had to look up, then head over to Bermuda Onion’s Weblog to learn some new ones. It’s been a while since I came across a new word (which probably means I need more challenging reading material), but I did have one word, so I wanted to join in! This week, I’ve got a new word from Pitch Dark by Steven Sidor. Very scary and very interesting so far.
1. Perseverate – Repeat or prolong an action, thought, or utterance after the stimulus that prompted it has ceased.
“He tried not to perseverate on its loss.”
