  1. I’ve looked that word up before but didn’t remember it. I need to try to use it this week so that I can remember it. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Interesting. I don’t think I know about this word.

  3. It’s a bit of an old fashioned word, my grandmother used to use it quite often so it worked it’s way into my vocabulary. I don’t think I’ve ever used the word in conversation, but it just seemed to fit in this sentence

  4. I do not believe I have ever seen that word before. Now I am educated!!
