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)
