And, week 13 has arrived! It’s been forever since I’ve down one of these posts, but hey, in keeping with the flurry of activity I had Tuesday, I should probably do another one right? =P Don’t worry, the fourth chapter of Taker is coming soon, I just need to finish it up.
Definition: “to express sadness or sympathy for someone who has experienced something unpleasant.” (Mirriam Webster)
Backstory: This is a word that I’ve seen all over the place in books, and I never quite knew its meaning, and when I finally happened upon it on Vocabulary.com, I realized that I had an entirely wrong meaning to it, so there you go. =P
You know something that always surprises me? How much more familiar I am with archaic words than I am with more “modern” words. I guess it goes to show the influences of reading historical fiction written by authors in the 1800s. XD
