This week my reading has provided me with the following interesting sounding words.
a knoll or hillock.
Interestingly this was used to describe a character’s stomach. I liked the sound of it.
(formerly, in India) a native soldier, usually an infantryman, in the service of Europeans, esp. of the British.
(in India) an exhibition of dancing by professional dancing girls.
Can you tell I am reading about British India? The Siege of Krishnapur is certainly expanding my vocabulary amongst other things.
