Here are a series of words I came across in my reading of Dark Journey by Neil R. McMillen and Local People by John Dittmer, the two books we were assigned to read for my JBS Mississippi program, which made me stop and think and look them up.
***Thanks to Alex for writing in with his definitions, here they are!
Having sex with animals, or cruel treatment of others (animal or human)
Common yet incorrect usage of words or phrases
Relating to a governor
Interfaith or multi-denominational
A lack or scarcity
A beginning, first attempt/achievement
Would anyone enjoy taking a stab at defining them? *We are still open to new definitions if you would like to contribute to this ever-growing dictionary/book club.
