Undulatory

Undulatory is a great word, isn't it? It means undulating or wavy, or due to undulation. And undulation means a wavy motion or a gentle rise and fall.

There are days when my hair is as undulatory as this wave lapping gently against the breakwater.

Thanks muchly. Just the word I needed this morning. I wish I'd thought it up.

Careful, Patsy, or your hair will be really frizzy from undulating. Nice Pic, too!

Susan A Eames said...

Oh yes, that is a great word. I don't think my hair has ever managed to do that though! :)

Teresa Ashby said...

Lovely picture! My hair is undulatory, but only on one side :-/ xx

Frances Garrood said...

A lovely word - almost onomatopoeia (and I always have to look up the spelling of that word!). My hair undulates too, always in the wrong direction (or all directions).

Thank you for making me chuckle at the thought of your undulatory hair. (btw my spell check doesn't like this word!)

Patsy said...

It's OK if you say it slowly enough, Mac.

Patsy said...

I hope it comes in useful, Henry.

Patsy said...

That does sometimes happen, Oscar.

Patsy said...

Mine only stops if extreme force, heat, patience and some kind of sticky substance are used, Susan.

Patsy said...

So you look different when going left to right from your appearance when going right to left, Teresa?

Patsy said...

Mine does it in so many directions, the right one is usually involved to some extent, Frances.

Patsy said...

Spell checkers often need educating, Wendy. I've taught mine a few new words.

Teresa Ashby said...

Yes I'm afraid I do! xx
