Oxford Dictionary Word of the Day – Eructation

Its Thursday so time again for the Oxford Dictionary word of the day. For those that missed last weeks post I am taking the Oxford Dictionary word of the day, explaining the meaning and where it comes from, and then using it in a sentence that is somehow related to a sci-fi / fantasy world. The rest is up to you guys, I want you to post your own sentences in the comments field below, the crazier the better. Today’s word of the day is:

Eructation

Noun

Definition:
A belch.

Origin:
Late Middle English: from Latin eructatio(n-), from the verb eructare, from e- (variant of ex-) ‘out’ + ructare ‘belch’

My Sentence:
One of Kyle’s most impressive talents was the ability say the entire Flenovian alphabet in a single eructation.

Ok now it’s your turn, hopefully you can get an entire sentence out in a single eructation.
