Wordy Wednesday (2)

 Wordy Wednesday is a new meme I will have here at On The Shelf.  I love to learn new words and being the avid reader I am, I am bound to come across words I don’t know, so this meme is to spread word knowledge! If you’d like to participate, just post the word and the definition and any other fun facts you may want to list as well.

For this Wordy Wednesday I have:

Wherewithal:  necessary means or ability needed in order to do something or for having something.
First known use was in 1534, but wasn’t recorded as a noun until 1809.

 “‘I blacked out,’ I say.  I meant for it to be a question, but my voice can’t summon the wherewithal required for inflection.”
