Wednesday’s Word (#21)


It’s hard to believe that it’s already midweek (or June, for that matter) but no complaints here! Since it’s Wednesday, I thought I’d share another word to add to your lexicon if it’s not already in there.

This week’s word is…

n. The process of heating or warming (as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary)

As the summer months are nearly upon those of us in the northern hemisphere, I figured a word related to things heating up would be appropriate. I was happy to stumble across calefaction!

A calefaction point is different from a boiling point since boiling is actually turning a liquid into vapor. Hopefully it doesn’t get that hot where you live! Regardless, the calefaction of the northern hemisphere after the winter is well underway.

Happy Wednesday!
