Old Word Friday: Gallimaufry

 

This is a fun word to say – gallimaufry, which means a┬ájumbled medley (can also refer to an edible dish). Why you need such a long word for that, I do not know…

But here are some sentences showing how you can use it:

Tina made her famous bean gallimaufry with chickpeas, kidney beans, and black beans.

Or…

The students had to made a gallimaufry of pictures from their field trip for their final project.

Old Word Friday: Twirlblast

 

Twirlblast is such a fun old word. How old? Well according to certain sources twirlblast dates back to the 1700s. Twirlblast simply put is an old name for tornado. I don’t know why they ever decided to change it to tornado since the older name for it sounds so much betters.

Examples of using Twirlblast in a sentence:

The town was devastated by a class 5 twirlblast.

Or…

The child’s room looked like a twirlblast tore through.
