Wednesday Word of the Day

boscage \BOS-kij\, noun:
A mass of trees or shrubs.

~She lured the snarly wolf into the boscage with her scent, but kept him there with her soft skin and the look in her eye.~

Boscage comes from the Middle French word boscage, from the roots bosk meaning “a small wood or thicket” and -age, a suffix that denotes a general noun, like voyage and courage.
