I try to write down a handful of new words every day. I won’t guarantee that I’ll learn them straight away, but at least they’re in my notebook in the appropriate section and I’ll read them out loud a few times, sometimes using this site to try to improve my pronunciation if it’s a tricky one.
Every now and then though, I stumble across a word that makes me ponder how the human tongue is supposed to make a sound like a bumble bee trapped inside a glockenspiel. So I thought I’d celebrate these words when I find them with a new category of post, my Challenging word of the day.
Today is :
It means a blade or stalk
źdźbło trawy = a blade of grass
