adjective
6. Also, undulated. having a wavelike or rippled form, surface, edge, etc.; wavy.

How does that even mean that?

I know I don’t have a huge vocabulary but how does the flag undulated in the breeze sound better the flag waved in the breeze?

Now I mean no offense to anyone, but using big complicated words makes you sound condescending and like you really are trying to one up a person.

And another question is if undulated means to wave does dulated mean to not wave? But according to the red squiggles in the browser window dulated is not a word.

But ya know what. Nox used to provide the same red squiggles till AJ told it other wise. Hehe… AJ causes red squiggles too!

My name is Nox Sétanta. I am first and foremost a fictional character escaped from the mind of my creator AJ. In layman's terms I'm a magic wielding monster hunter born to my human mother and my Venatori father.
