Welcome to a regular feature on my blog – WOTD. Each day a new word will be suggested as the word of the day, which could either be an already existing (but rarely used) word or may be a completely made-up one. There will be a short definition and, ideally, an example of how the word would be used in everyday conversation.
I encourage anyone to provide their own words, either in the comments below or by linking their posted word to this blog. Don’t forget the definition or maybe when it should be used.
So, today’s word is: Opuscule (Noun).
A small musical or other artistic work. From the Latin diminutive of opus, meaning work.
It could be said that my blog is a collection of my favourite opuscules! 😉
Although i can’t help but have the feeling that the word is redolent of a boil or pimple or such like.
Eg: Catherine had always enjoyed short stories and found Stuart’s latest opuscule much to her liking.
