Zori n. (pl.) The Superior Person's word for thongs, that peculiarly aestival form of footwear commonly employed for the purpose of jamming the wearer's foot underneath the brake pedals, tripping him up in public places and upon acutely serrated seaside rock formations, and rendering the sound of his coming and going akin to that of a flock of migrating ducks.
Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Zori appears in the First.
