Superior Person's Tuesday!

YUELING, n. Walking around fruit trees praying for a good crop. Try it if you wish, but this author can only say that he has found swearing to be more effective.

He might need to try his hand at yueling.


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. Yueling appears in the second.
