What I found in 'Red Shoe' as a Word Watcher

;
Well, I just want to post what I found after reading Red Shoe and took role as a word watcher. This is just to help anyone who might looking for it on the internet.

So... Being a word watcher isn’t an easy task to do, it is the same as other roles in reviewing a literature work. I mean, I was reading the book and enjoying the story but also I have to put my attention to every word written there. Lucky on me, it is easier because the word used in the story is not so unfamiliar –there only a few of them that we do not know the meaning—and it is helped by the dictionaries. Reading the stories to find the unfamiliar vocabularies is difficult because some of them should be found on internet as some of them related to the habit and culture of the place when and where Red Shoe is set.

Below I will provide some unfamiliar words we found, We consider to write the meaning of the word, the chapter and pages where the word can be found and the words’ part of speech. There is only one word we do not know the meaning and can not find it even on internet:
