A strange title, I know. But there are those times when everything seems so mundane, and I need to spark my brain. When that happens, I like to do unusual things.
One day when was entering another of those series of letters that let me leave a comment on some blogs, I decided to start collecting them. See what they could spark.
I have a list of probably 40 or 50 of the strange words. Now how could I use them. Well if I wrote sci-fi/fantasy and wanted to create a new world, all those things would need names that are different from the ones in our world. Here are some words for a book like that:
Gicasiff - an animal that is low to the ground with a wide body. It sniffs at the swast as it goes along
Swast - tall wheat-like stalks that are good to eat
Angstici - the palace where the Duvalua of Conthys lives
Davalua - ruler
Conthys - country
Now you choose one or more of the following words and give the definition in your comment at the bottom of this post.
