Good day, my loves. I missed last Monday because apparently I missed the part in the Illustration Major's handbook where it says "thou shall constantly have seven assignments to finish and when one is completed another seven shall take its place." So sorry! I've brought two words today to make up for it!
Interesting tidbit: unless otherwise specified it is generally accepted that the bird of comparison is a hawk. To have an accipitrine nose means to have a nose “…shaped like a hawk’s beak.”
Like the sails of a windmill.
From the French, “molendinum” meaning “a mill” and “molere” meaning “to grind.”
“The mechanised creature Doctor Strumm unveiled looked frighteningly accipitrine but it could barely fly faster than one could walk, its wings rotating 360 degrees around its body in a molendinaceous fashion.”
Love Tahlia, who is rather sick of people spelling her name wrong. It's not that friggin' hard!
