Eructation

Eructation \ih-ruhk-TAY-shuhn\, noun:  The act of belching; a belch.

When I came across this new word, I couldn’t help but share it.  Eructation.  What a wonderful way of saying burp, as in “Ooo, gross that eructation smells terrible.”  It’s like erupt, but with erudition.  (Erudition: extensive knowledge acquired chiefly from books)

Anyway, that’s your word for Friday.  Go out and use it even if it means doing it yourself.  “Well pardon me for that eructation.  I declare, I just have no idea where it came from.”  (note: best said with a southern accent)
