What's the last word you googled?
13

MardyBra · 26/04/2014 13:27

Hamartia for me (seen on another thread). A mistake or error or judgement, often a tragic flaw.

Any other good words you'd like to share?

"redolent"

It means what I thought it did, but I was wrong about the register.

Sycophant, I was fairly sure I knew what it meant but quickly googled to check before I used it.

faff

I am American, and I generally understood what it meant from context, but I wanted to know the dictionary definition, etymology, and whether it's considered slang. It's not generally used in the US.

juxtoposition. Mainly because my son said I was using it wrong. Meh, you teach them words and it all comes back on you later.

Just looked up "fungible".

(especially of goods) being of such nature or kind as to be freely exchangeable or replaceable, in whole or in part, for another of like nature or kind.

It was in an economics article.
