This is the next 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 B.
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…
B is for
Baboonery – no, not somewhere to keep your pet baboon! It actually means foolishness or stupidity.
Balaniferous – bearing acorns.
Belonephobia – a fear of pins and needles!
Bibliogenesis – the production of books. I rather like that one!
Bee – that delightful insect which graces our gardens is in trouble. Here are a few links if you are interested in finding out how you can attract more bees and other pollinators into your garden:
Royal Horticultural Society – lots of advice on plants to attract bees and how to make a bee hotel for your garden.
The British Beekeepers Association – https://www.bbka.org.uk/
American Beekeeping Federation – https://www.abfnet.org/
