That Word is the segment on my blog where I post new words that have newly discovered 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
This is another of those words I discovered while playing words with friends.
- (in the levant) a holder, usually of ornamental metal, for a coffee cup without a handle.
Jayden held his cup by the the zarf, raising an eyebrow. He wasn't particularly fond of coffee.
I love this word word because it is so unique. It is a word I certainly hadn't heard of before. It excites me because I didn't know there was such a thing as a zarf. If someone were to call it be it's actual name I would wonder it was a real word.
As for how to say it. It sounds just like it looks.
