Word of the Week: Burble

Word of the week, or however long it takes me to post another one of these.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, I love words. I love the history, the complexity. I love words in other languages (parapuille, one of my favorite words that I know- umbrella in French), and the endless combinations that are possible. I try to focus on one word a day, or week, depending on the complexity of the word, so I thought I would share delicious language I’m hearing, speaking, writing. I will use the Oxford Dictionary and Merriam-Webster Dictionary to define. Today, it’s Oxford.

Burble, verb, (rhymes with purple) – make a continuous murmuring noise or of an airflow, breaking up turbulence.

Example from my recent writings: “I could hear their screams, their fever burbles. They could hear mine.”

You may notice that I used it as a noun, which you may notice a lot in my writing. I love to use words like burble as a noun, adjective, adverb. I have a feeling editors won’t like that, but I can’t help myself. Grammar can be too constricting, and I am making an intentional departure. I’ll let you know how it goes.
