290114 Interesting Wordhoard Anticipated

290114_LRThe obvious shot for today’s word, which was wordhoard, meaning: ‘A store of words; (in later use esp.) the vocabulary of a person, group, or language’ (OED), would have been a dictionary, or my shelf of dictionaries, or similar. However, on seeing this Denver boot, my immediate reaction was the wordhoard that the owner would be drawing upon when (s)he noticed that not only was it cold, windy and tipping down with rain, but that getting home tonight would be a long and costly process. I’m guessing it’s a fairly limited wordhoard, comprising many four letter words and not much else.

Day #29 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
