That Word is the segment on my blog where I post new words that I discover newly or have jumped out at me once again. If you love finding new words this post is for you. If you're a writer looking for different words to describe some this post may also be for you.
Where I Discovered It
I wrote this at the top of the page on one of my notebooks in April. According to the note with it I found it on page 81 of The Secret River by Kate Grenville which was a book I was reading for school.
- full of complaints; complaining
- characterised by or uttered in complaint; peevish:
At first Willie could not be got to lie down beside the baby, although he was exhausted, close to tears, his voice gone high and querulous. ~ p.81 The Secret River by Kate Grenville.
Although bullied, Lisa was not one to be querulous. ~ about one of my main characters
When I read this and wrote it down, I'm not sure I really understood what the word meant. Now I do I am intrigued. It is not a word I will just past by with a vague interest of wanting to know what it means. It's another one of those long words that has a rather simpler meaning. I think that I could use it in my writing but there may be quite a few people who are not aware of it's meaning.
