Miss Jenkins' tricky words

As many of you know Miss Jenkins' brain works a little differently due to her dyslexia. It is often when reading aloud her brain does some funny things to the words in front of her: switching them around, adding in extra words, missing some out altogether, mispronouncing others or just forgetting how to say them! 

This book has been a challenge because it is full of interesting (and some new) language. Because of this Miss Jenkins has made a list of words she has had to practise or double check before she has begun recording - some are quiet fascinating.

 

peregrination, abominable, oveted, ardently, dirigible, Algernon (this one was a name), derring-do, emblazoned, unguents, almanacs, pandemonium, guffawed, verbose, grotesqueries, cultivate, dubiously, preposterous, unperturbed, incredulous, precarious, mercilessly, undignified, sarcophagus, bigoted, industriously, wont, sea shanty
