Word of the Week: flehmen

Last week’s word was nascent. Merriam-Webster defines nascent as coming or having recently come into existence. I think we can safely say that scandals are rather nascent for Mr. Obama, or at least that’s the way it appears!

This week’s word is flehmen. Here are my definition attempts for it:

flehmen 1. the adjective used to describe Cherries Jubilee. 2. men who reside in a not-so-nice motel 3. the partial mispronunciation of Filet Mignon.
