Superior Person's Tuesday!

Nostrificate v. To accept as one’s own. “Don’t lean too far over the edge of the monkey pit, children; they are all too likely to nostrificate you."

Nostrification at its cutest.*

*If you like cute pictures of inter-species friendships, you're in luck – the Internet is loaded with them.

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. Nostrificate appears in the Second.
