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 or if you're a writer looking for different words to describe something this post may also be for you. I find most of these words using Dictionary.com.
Where I Discovered It
This is another word that was found in a list on my phone. There has been a long line of them.
- a high point of land or rock projecting into the sea or other water beyond the line of coast; headland
- a bluff; or part of a plateau, overlooking a lowland.
- Anatomy. a prominent or protrudent part.
An Example Sentence
The promontory point out at sea, no longer empty. Amongst all the crashing waves, was a boy.
Honestly looking at this word again, I had absolutely no idea what it could mean. Now that I know the meaning I think it would be a really useful word to use in a story. I don't think it's a word I've heard too often, so it may be another of those words that a just a little different to explain something simple or not so simple. Depending on how you look at it.
