I'm not particularly enjoying The Worm Ouroboros, and I switched from reading to skimming about a hundred pages in. But one thing that keeps pleasing me about it is the sheer volume of words I've never encountered before. There's a new one every couple of pages. Most of them are archaic, and a fair number of them are Scottish. Many of them look like typos, but when I look them up, they turn out to be real words.
I haven't been writing down most of them, but here are a few that I did take note of:
- peace and grith
- false fazarts
- A footra for your baits!
- the breath of that desert blew snell and frore
I particularly like that last one. Snell and frore!
