Day 233: Verbis Obscurum #4 – Shreep

Day 233: Verbis Obscurum #4 – Shreep

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Shreep – an East Anglian word originally used by shepherds to describe mist or fog that is slowly clearing.


About today’s photo: Shreep from Broadway to the Blue Mountains. Not to be confused with the smog in the far north. 


Verbis Obscurum is a collection of words old and new, rare or nearing extinction, to describe everyday phenomena of which you are not necessarily conscious, and which you lack the words to adequately describe. Once you’re told about them, you’ll start seeing them everywhere.
