That Word: Number 4

That Word is a segment where I will be posting a new word each week. They are words that I’ve newly discovered or words I’ve known but wanted to be more thorough in knowing the meaning. This could be for you writer’s like myself looking carefully into the words we use or it could be for those people who are just interested in all kinds of different words. No matter which one you are, this post is for you. This week’s word is…



Where I Discovered It

This is one of those words I discovered while traversing a Facebook writer’s groups online.


  1. the period of time from one new moon to the next (about 29 1/2 days); a lunar month.
Definitions sourced from

An Example Sentence

A Lunation, that is all the time we have.

My Thoughts

I think ‘lunation’ sounds cool. It’s a word I haven’t really heard of before. I’d be interesting in using it in a story. I think it would be used in a story that is set in an older time, though. It’s not a word you hear every day, but it would suit an older time better.


What are your thoughts? Have you heard or seen ‘lunation’ before? Have you used it before? Do you think you would use it in the future? Feel free to tell me your thoughts in the comments below.
