if you need to find unusual words beginning with the letter U, you simply must check out this link. who knew there were so many? unquestionably, unusual types of U words too, like ultracrepidate which means to 'criticize beyond sphere of one's knowledge'. I know a lot of people who partake in this specific activity, so it makes sense there would be a word for it. but seriously, has anyone actually ever used this word in a sentence? my spellcheck doesn't even acknowledge ultracrepidate as a word.
what about unguligrade? I've never heard of this word either. it means, 'walking on hooves'. I'd love to meet the person who knows how to use unguligrade in an interesting sentence. if you do check out the link, you will find a whole treasure trove of amazing and not often heard of U words. it certainly made my evening.
& just in case it isn't obvious, today's post is all about the letter U. if you've never been here before, please visit the abc wednesday meme and join in the fun.
oh and by the way, I found this unusually large foot on the upper east side in manhattan.
