Accretionary Wedge #35: What’s Your Favorite Geology Word?

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

I’m hosting this month’s Accretionary Wedge Geoblog Carnival here at Georneys. Since I write about a geology word every week (see the “Geology Word of the Week” tag on the sidebar or the post “A Geologist’s Alphabet”), I thought it would be fitting to host an etymological Accretionary Wedge. This month’s Accretionary Wedge is easy– if you want you can post just a single word!

The theme for this month is:

What’s your favorite geology word?

You can post just the word if you want. You can also add anything you want– a definition, some pictures related to the word, a story about the word, a poem, a drawing. Anything at all!

I must warn you, though: if you post about a good word, I may use the word in a future Geology Word of the Week post!

To join the geoblog carnival, just write a post on your blog and then link to it in a comment below or in a comment over at the Accretionary Wedge site. If you don’t have a blog, you should start one. If you don’t want to start a blog, just type your word in a comment below. Please submit your entries by the 26th or thereabouts so that I can compile them by the end of the month. Happy blogging!

Finally, be sure to check out last month’s Accretionary Wedge #34: Weird Geology.
