Wondrous Words Wednesday

Bermudaonion is sponsoring a new meme to introduce readers to Wondrous Words on Wednesdays, and this will be the first time I am participating. Yipee.

Here are the words I found in The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett:

1. Amanuensis: a writing assistant to conduct research and perform secretarial duties, though I didn’t mark the page I found this on, so I can’t tell you how Bennett used the word.

2. Solipsistic: someone who believes the theory of self can be proved to exist or extreme self-absorption

3. Opsimath: a person that continues or begins to learn later in life.

Although, most of these are defined in the novel.
