The group meets every Wednesday at the Community Hub, Goolwa Terrace, Goolwa from 1.30 to 3.30pm

(re-commenced July and runs through to 25th November 2020)

This course will appeal to the abecedarians, logodaedali and sesquipedlians. Join us in a breezy romp through words and phrases in any language, that are unusual, obscure, intriguing , appeal to the senses or are occasionally rude or ugly.  It is rare to have a session without a good cachinnation laced with snorts and guffaws.  Bring along to our sessions any of your own examples of conundrums, word origins or fancy tickling words and facts and maybe leave with onomatomania.
