I've just finished reading a Robin Hobb trilogy at the behest of my wife. Not bad. Interestingly, Hobb uses a number of words I either was not familiar with and/or would not think to use. Here's a list:
ichor - pronounced eye-ker. Ooze from a wound.
lave - wash. Latin: lavare. Apparently it was present in Old English as lafian. Compare: lavatory.
chantey - a naval song. Compare: chant.
prate - to chatter. Compare Afrikaans praat.
salal - a kind of American plant.
hummock - a hump or hill.
cicatrix - a scab or scar.
ensorcel - to hypnotise or enchant. Compare: sorcery.
gelid - freezing. Compare: gelatine and cold.
carom - to rebound. A billiards term.
forefend - delay, inhibit, prevent, forestall.
immure - incarcerate. Latin: in murus, in a wall.
vail - to remove a hat. Compare: veil.
