Vocabulary: Week 4

Oh my! We are 4, almost 5, weeks into 2011 already!! Time sure flies...

I will admit that I didn't have much luck using curmudgeon, conflagration, or Coptic in the last week. However, I have read conflagration twice in the last 24 hours and had a renewed understanding of the word. And curmudgeon has become a bit of a family joke. I will probably never actually use Coptic in a normal sentence, but at least I know what it means. :)

The word for this week, January 23, which I did just choose last night, is:
"Frisson: a brief moment of emotional excitement: shudder, thrill."
And yes, it is pronounced with a French accent. ;)
