Words of the Week Update

I have had fun over the last few weeks deciding what word to take as my Word of the Week (WOW). Unfortunately I haven’t got round to posting them weekly – the last being in November.

Strangely enough I now have time because of the restrictions which have been caused by the infamous corona virus.

So here is a list of the WOWs that I chose. I think my customers have had fun using them either because they are simply funny words or because they have lightened the mood recently.

When I first introduced the Word of the Week I intended to introduce each with the phonetic symbols to help people with pronunciation. Due to my lack of staying power I will just write a list of my WOWs with an example of how they can be used.
