Question of the Day #581

I've been missing out. On earthquakes.

Apparently, there was a bit of a shaker on Sunday night / Monday morning, sometime around 3:00 AM. It didn't wake me or anyone else in my house.

Then around 5:00 PM on Monday, another little earthquake hit followed by a series of tremblers. I didn't feel them either. (Who knew my WIP could be so gripping?)

When earthquakes arrive in bunches, they're called "swarms." What new term have you recently learned of?

  1. Ugh...I had to relearn the word 'avoid' today. For some reason my french mind kept thinking that 'evit' was a word. But the thesaurus says its not.

  2. Tough question, since stuff like new terms generally creeps into vocab on a sneaky, quasi-subliminal manner. I guess the newest terms I've come across have all be special education-related: SELPA, CAC, SH, "Push In," etc.

  3. Plumes! I thought they were feathers, unfortunately in the Gulf they have another meaning :(
