Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Ugar

UgaritlocImage via Wikipedia
Ugar:  noun - a pre-Phoenician Semitic language first discovered at the site of Ugarit; a god of vegetation, possibly Canaanite: adjective - pertaining to the language.

‘When speaking of Ugar, the famous archaeologist wondered whether first there was Ugarit and then Ugar, or the other way round: which spawned which, was the question.’

‘Bow down and worship Ugar the benevolent, or else he’ll make sure your crops don’t flourish; such, apparently, is the nature of these gods.’
