important trifles

I have been modifying my vocabulary - reading King James' English helps much, as does watching videos of intellectuals... It's always fun to circumnavigate (iron sharpens iron / friends sharpen friends!) until a definition is created.

Here are some words I am working with lately, followed by their definitions.

See if you can match them!

1. misogyny a. to shed rays of light upon; illuminate; to illumine intellectually or spiritually

2. ineffable b. The act of taking; reception

3. susception c. mournful, dismal, or gloomy, esp. in an affected, exaggerated, or unrelieved manner; Mournful, dismal, or gloomy, especially to an exaggerated or ludicrous degree.
4. discharge d. highly distinguished; renowned; famous; glorious; luminous; bright
5. irradiate(d) / irradiating e. hatred, dislike, or mistrust of women.

6. illustrious f. Still trying to find a good definition for this one, as says it's not a word but quite a few peoples have used it ...

7. infallacy g. to pour forth,emit; to relieve of obligation, responsibility; to remove or send forth.

8. lugubrious h. incapable of being expressed or described in words
