Final WWW post using words from THE FORTUNE HUNTER by Daisy Goodwin.  Information from the Oxford Dictionaries (Online)

Punctilious:  punc·til·i·ous –  Showing great attention to detail or correct behavior.

‘Oh yes, Augusta was punctilious in letting me know about that,’ Charlotte replied.

Trenchant:  trench·ant – Vigorous or incisive in expression or style.

Augusta, realizing that her mother was going to support Middleton so long as there was a chance of being introduced to the Empress, took up her place at the piano and gave her own trenchant version of a Chopin nocturne.

Kedgeree:  ked·ger·ee  (kejəˌrē) –   A European dish consisting chiefly of fish, rice, and hard-boiled eggs.

Charlotte went into the breakfast room, where the footmen were setting out chafing dishes of eggs and bacon, deviled kidneys, and kedgeree.

  1. I’ve shared punctilious for WWW and was happy for the review! I think I could often use trenchant to describe my strong willed daughter’s behavior. Thanks for a great new word!
