Q:What is the biggest word you've seen used in a book lately--that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition and book too.
I had a hard time with this question. I don't usually look up words that I am unfamiliar with. Unfortunately, I'm usually too into the book to stop reading and search out a dictionary or Dictionary.com. Plus I can usually figure out the meaning based on the context...I'm a good English major that way.
I guess the biggest word that made me pause lately was ASSIDUOUSLY which is in Julie Anne Long's What I Did For a Duke. I know what the word means, but it took me a bit of time to remember. Here is the Dictionary.com entry for ASSIDUOUSLY:
1. constant; unremitting: assiduous reading.
2. constant in application or effort; working diligently at a task; persevering; industrious; attentive: an assiduous student.
