Word of the Week: flocculate

Good morning, Word Lovers! Last week’s WOW was veld. According to Merriam-Webster Online, veld means a grassland especially of southern Africa usually with scattered shrubs or trees. The father-in-law was in “the vicinity” with his guess, but I don’t think any of us would have guessed that this term is specific to a particular geographic area.

This week’s WOW is flocculate. Here are my guesses for flocculate:

flocculate (ˈflä-kyə-ˌlāt) 1. the act of birds flocking together. 2. spraying probable ozone-depleting carcinogens on a Texan Christmas tree in an effort to keep all the needles from falling off the week before Christmas 3. speculating about who will get a birdie on the golf course next 4. a word one should say very, very carefully

What are your guesses for flocculate? Comment below!
