Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bermuda Onion, where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our weekly reading.
eleemosynary (adj) (1620): of, or relating to, or supported by charity. (Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary)
"The effort on behalf of the immigrants is not of course purely eleemosynary. Israel needs these people to fill the vessel of the state." (p. 139, Practicing History by Barbara Tuchman)


  1. Wow, that's a mouthful! Thanks for playing along!

  2. I did not know this word... and it's quite a mouthful!! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I just love to say that word -- I use it whenever I can, though it's not easy to find an excuse!
