Words

Almost all the words included in this post are words I encountered while reading the Flashman novels Flashman and the Mountain of Light, Flash for Freedom!, and Flashman and the Redskins. Almost all the words are words I have not included in similar posts in the past, but I decided to include a few words (2 or 3 words, something like that) I already included in similar posts in the past because I like those words and the fact that I had taken notice of them while reading these novels indicates to me that they haven’t yet stuck in my mind the way I’d like them to do; I usually only mark out words with which I’m either unfamiliar or words the meaning of which I have trouble remembering.

The post includes 6 segments of 20 words/concepts each.
