We are off to a wild safari this week. Each day of the expedition promises the sighting of a new animal. There will be creatures large and small, leaping and crawling, chasing and being chased. But all of them have their own majestic place, their own purpose, in the grand scheme of things. There are five of them within this week's words. Some may be easier to spot than others. How many can you find?
dentigerous (den-TIJ-uhr-uhs) adjective
[From Latin denti- (teeth) + -gerous (bearing), from gerere (to bear).]
-Anu Garg (words at wordsmith.org)
"For a man in his awkwardly dentigerous position, the order to 'flash those teeth' must doubly hurt." Neville Marten and Jeff Hudson; Kinks; Bobcat Books; 2007.
Kindness is loving people more than they deserve. -Joseph Joubert, moralist and essayist (1754-1824)
