Word of the Day
Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Ungol (noun) – In the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, the Ungol are a race of people who live underground in Tiurlang; they guard the prophecy scrolls and watch over the prophets; when Chariss was a child, they offered her shelter for part of a year

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender created this word so long ago that she doesn't remember where she came up with it, but she has a notebook with the word spelled backwards, scratched out, and spelled as it currently is used

Word in a Sentence (from the high fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 272): Of all the Ungol assembled along the gate and iron wall, he had chosen her eyes to meet. And now he held her captive in his lunatic glare.

Your turn! Okay…the Ungol are an entire race of people. They're lovely and creative and protective of deep, dark secrets. Surely you can create a fabulous sentence with fodder like that.

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
