Quirky Words

Abscond (ab-SKOND) verb
to disappear suddenly and secretly, usually to avoid getting in trouble. A person who absconds is an absconder.

I am currently planning on publishing a new quirky word every week to not only give us some laughs but my hope is to also challenge us all to broaden our vocabulary a bit! I hope that you enjoy these neat words as much as I do.


  1. Quirky? What about eccentric, idiosyncratic, unconventional, unorthodox, unusual, strange, bizarre, peculiar, odd, outlandish, wonderful, marvelous, magnificent, superb, glorious, sublime, lovely, delightful...ahem, where was I? Ah yes, I remember what I intended to convey. I merely wished to remark that abscond is an excellent word. Quirky words should be used more often!

  2. Ok, here's a vocabulary question for you--What does comestible mean?


  3. The answer to that question is food.

  4. I feel like I'm back in college.... English 101 vocabulary... yikes! Have fun!! Hugs, Mrs. Potvin
