word or phrase to add to your army.
Brachiate is a fun word that can be a noun or a related verb. Even more fun, it is pronounced two different ways; one for the noun and a different pronunciation for the verb.
The verb, brachiate (bray-key-ate) is what monkeys do in trees or you might do on the monkey bars at school. When you swing with alternating arms grabbing limbs or bars, you are brachiating.
When you see a tree with limbs on opposite sides of one another, those limbs are brachiate (bray-key-at).
No go forth and brachiate on a tree with brachiate limbs, or better yet, a set of monkey bars!
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
