U for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 7: ABC Wednesday - U




U might stand for under or un-things.


Under snow - I don't remember what was under the November snowfall that broke the 1955 record. AKA ~ under the weather.

Underwater - comes with the thaw.

Underthings - unmentionable.

Unknown - a huge category.

Unwords: a delightful site full of unwords can be found here http://www.unwords.com/alpha/U/0.html or can be purchased here: The Unword Dictionary: 1,000 Words For Things You Didn't Think Had Words! (How America Speaks series)

Great take on the letter U. Winter is underway but hopefully won't break records for being under snow.

Until the Spring thaw may you have an ultra-fine time inside with all your utilities

Under snow, I think whatever is living there has dug deeper. Great link.

Reader Wil said...

Two days ago I heard somebody telling about the homeless people in north Russia, who die during the long and extremely cold winters. They get burried under the snow. In spring when the snow starts melting their bodies turn up. They are called snow bells. Horrible, isn't it?!

The number of unwords is unbelievable.

Mara said...

I was once told the word used to describe the little plastic thingies on the end of laces, but of course I forgot. So, now it's an unword I guess...

Paula Scott said...

I love learning obscure things and I always seem to find that here. I didn't know there was a category of unwords'!

Jingle said...

That book looks fun!! I might have to get some copies for Christmas gifts. Hmm. Would it be cruel to give it to an Italian who isn't quite fluent in English yet? Tee hee ... ;)

Wanda said...

That was a clever take on the letter U. Anything less would have been UNthinkable. haha

EG Wow said...

Wonderful choice of U=words!

ChrisJ said...

Oh an 'UN' book to go with my un words. But I've still got indigestion from yesterdays.
