Favorite Words, Recommenced…

Posted by

If you recall, back in… October… (seems like a lifetime ago in this pandemic), I had a post titled “FAVORITE WORDS and why I love them”. I promised you my next set of words… and here they are. What are your favorite words? Do they come from grandma, family jokes, or a book ? Let me know in the comments.

Petrichor

(n): the scent of rain on the earth

pronounciation: pet-ri-kawr, pe-trahy-kawr

Psithurism

(n): the sound of the wind through the trees

Scripturient

(adj): having a consuming passion to write

Callipygian

(adj.): having shapely buttocks

pronounciation: kal-uhpij-ee-uhn

Palimpsest

(n): writing material used one or more times after earlier writing has been erased; something with diverse layers or aspects apparent beneath the surface.

pronounciation: pal-imp-sest 

Editor Note: Check out the ghost ads that I am researching, since palimpsest is one of my current favorite words from that! Also, be on the lookout for the “FADED” book I’m working on with Edward Branley.
