Unusual Words

Not only has this A-Z April challenge been a lot of fun for me. it has also been very educational. I have pulled out my dictionary a few times when we were nearing a difficult subject letter (U was no exception). So, today, I thought I would just share some interesting “U” words that are out there :).

Uvid means moist or wet. I know a few people who dislike the word moist for some reason or another, I guess this would be another option for them.

Usward means toward us. Can’t say I’ve every actually heard anyone use this word.

Usucaption means acquisition of property by long usage and enjoyment. Hmmm….a way to get things for free?

Urticant means stinging or irritating. I would probably tend to use this one as an insult.

and finally,

Urbacity means excessive pride in one’s city.

What “U” words have you found?

  1. those are quite weird. Most of them look like they should be words on their own and you just stuck a U in front of them!

  2. Ewww… I do not like the word “uvid”. It is worst than moist! (Moist never really bothered me but I can see how it bothers some people)

    I really like the word usward. Now I’m going to have to see if I can find ways to work it into conversation! 🙂

    I hadn’t heard of the others either… but no strong feelings one way or the other. 🙂 Great post!

    One of my favorite “u” words (that I don’t use in conversation but just think is cool) — ubiquitous
