Medieval Monday | Words and Phrases
Welcome to Medieval Monday in Mary's Tavern! I'm back after spending a week playing and relaxing with my husband. We didn't go far in our travels, but it's amazing what historical places of interest you can visit in your own neighborhood and state. A few places of interest (besides the multiple wineries) were the California Railroad Museum and Sacramento Historic City Cemetery. We were favored with cool and partially cloudy days--excellent for exploring and working off the extra calories. I must confess we consumed a lot of ice cream during the week. Whew! Glad it's all gone.
Now on to Medieval Monday...
I've decided to dedicate the first Monday of each month to a medieval word or phrase. If you've read my books, you'll notice I sprinkle my stories with a few choice words:
amiss: in a mistaken way
forsake: to renounce or turn away from entirely
forsooth: In truth, indeed
forsworn: guilty of perjury
sennight: the space of 7 nights and days/week
swinish: swine, beastly, rude
This month's word is: Alegar
