Wordy Wednesday!


This weeks Wordy Wednesday word is a good one for describing unusual movement, try it when you're next writing a character scene;

Laterigrade


- To move sideways
- Sideways movement such as that of a crab or spider
- A laterigrade animal

Laterigrade originally comes from a combination of Latin words and although used rarely it would have entered the English language somewhere around the 18th century.

'Careful not to be seen by those he was watching Si edged through the trees in a laterigrade fashion, creeping slowly around the periphery of the camp.' 

Can you use this word in a short piece of prose, flash fiction or poetry?
Comment it below and share the creativity!
