Friends of Scriba will know that we’re big fans of the English Language! Why? Because you could be faced with an undeniably tough question, for example, but if you think carefully, you might need only a single word to answer it!
This was actually the very idea behind our latest blog series – One Word Wonder. 10 questions, 10 seconds to answer each, and 10 resulting words, dedicated to that person in the hot seat. OK, the questions aren’t exactly Mastermind standard. Nor will they cause anyone any sleepless nights. But they may just give you a sneak peek into what’s going on inside that person’s own little vocab!
Next up it’s our Account Manager Amy…

Which word is being used to death at the moment? ‘Grammable’ – Instagram, what have you done?
Pick a word that symbolises Yorkshire, Scriba’s home county… Charming

And your favourite word of all time? Wanderlust
