Wordy Wednesday (8)

 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.  I also like to include the sentence it came from in the book I was reading as long as it doesn’t include spoilers.

For this Wordy Wednesday I have:

Motley: 1. Diverse 2. Made of different elements or colors. 3. Heterogeneous assemblage 4. Medley

First used about the late 1400s, likely from Old English “mot” for speck.
