Welcome to Word Nerd Wednesday—and boy, do I have a mouthful for you today! Today, we’re playing a game of ‘What do you think it means’ inspired by Kristy Cambron’s latest release, The Illusionist’s Apprentice. If you haven’t read my review of this fabulous book yet, be sure to check it out here.
First of all—pronunciation. How on earth do you say this word, I hear you asking? Like this: Pres-teh-dij-i-tay-shun (not to be confused with predestination!) Say it a couple of times and get comfortable with it. Pres-teh-dij-i-tay–shun.
Got it? Okay. Now, if you’ve read The Illusionist’s Apprentice, you’ll realize this word doesn’t actually appear in the novel. However, it is something with which the eponymous character, Wren Lockhart, would have been familiar. And that’s all the clue you’re getting. Your job (and I mean yours, not Professor Google’s!) is to come up with what you think the definition might be. I’m eagerly awaiting your guesses, from the most sensible to the most outrageously creative—so don’t be shy! 🙂
As always with these posts, I’ll let you know the answer in next week’s edition. Until then, happy word-nerding!
