Word of the Day
Saturday, January 20, 2007
Scute (noun) – A turtle word! This is a bony plate, a sort of chitinous scale like you’d find on a turtle (the word originates in Latin from “scutum”, meaning “shield”)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, the dragon fledgling that visits Chariss has thin scutes, delicate in his youth, and she fears for his safety.

Your turn! Surely someone has a reptile sentence!

When I saw the snake, coiled up on the ground in front of me, I tried to immediately pull the nylon windbreaker tighter, wanting it to serve as best it could like a scute for my arms and chest, if the snake decided to spring and hit high in its aim.
