Fellow word geeks, you know how you can get pulled out of whatever you are reading by a word? Say for example, barachois (a lagoon separated from the ocean by a sandbar.) And you’re off … bayou, beck, bight, billabong, firth, fjord, mangrove, moat, pyhtolelma, sea loch, sea lough, slough, tarn, wash. To name a few. Or puddle.
