Happy new year's eve Literatis! May 2016 be fabulously 'bookish' for us all. I'd like to share with you a couple of new words I've learnt from Americanah:
The first one is Traducers: It comes 'traduce' and according to, it means to speak badly or tell lies about someone so as to damage their reputation.
 Next is Dour which is defined, also by as a relentlessly severe stern or gloomy appearance.
Then fop which defines as a man who is preoccupied with and often vain about his clothes and manners; a dandy.
Which new words did you learn? I'd love to know.
