Weekly Words 1

by phildini on August 14, 2014


Howdy. On the recommendation of a really good book I picked up a couple weeks ago, I've started collecting words that are unknown to me. Here's the words I came across this week that I needed to look up, with my interpretation of their definition.

milieu - the general environment something takes place in, including natural and unnatural features, atmosphere, and culture (Wiki Milieu)

serge - a type of fabric, tightly woven, often wool, with a distinct pattern (Wiki Serge)

zweiback - twice-baked sweet toast from Germany. Literally means "twice baked" (Wiki Zweiback)

dramaturge - researcher and developer in a theater company. Kind of a meta-producer, responsible for meshing all the different creative visions with the source material (Wiki Dramaturge)

trinitite - glassy mineral residue left by the Trinity Bomb test (Wiki Trinitite)
