Word Of The Day

3 Mar

Being a word geek (and fast approaching dweeb proportions), I am on the mailing list of Dictionary.com, which sends me a Word of the Day.  I just have to share today’s word with you, because it’s fabulous:

ERUCTATION

 
\ih-ruhk-TAY-shuhn\, noun:
The act of belching; a belch.
Eructation comes from Latin eructatio, from eructare, from e-, “out” + ructare, “to belch.” 

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
