Thesaurus Thursday: "Perambulate."

Back to regular posting schedule (again)!

Today's word is "perambulate."  It is a verb meaning to stroll or to walk through or around, from Latin "per" (through, along, during) and "ambulō" (walk, traverse). The noun form, perambulation, can also refer in English law to walking around an area to determine its legal boundaries.

Because it was warm and sunny outside, we decided to perambulate in the park rather than be sedentary at home. 

She has figured out the spelling w-a-l-k.  
She would figure out the meaning of "perambulate" quickly enough.
