#WednesdayWords – A is for…

This is the first post in the #WednesdayWords weekly series where I will bring you some wonderful words every Wednesday.

There will be 5 words each week. Why 5? It seemed like a good odd number to me! One of the 5 will have a connection to reading, writing or language in general. The others you may have heard of but I am also hoping to bring you some that you don’t know.

So watch the short video below and let’s get started with A.

And just in case you are not sure of the meanings, I have included them below the video.

How many did you know? Check your meanings here…

A is for

Abecedary – or an abecedarium is an inscription consisting of the letters of the alphabet, usually listed in order.

Acronym – generally formed by the first letter of each word in a phrase, for example, AKA = also known as.

Allantoid – shaped like a sausage

Aluminium – silver grey metal


Apple – that delicious fruit best eaten, in my opinion, in a crumble!
