To remember mellifluous simply think of a rich, flowing melody that touched your ears and reached to your soul. It’s the sort of sound or the style of writing that wraps itself around you and leaves a caress about your being with it’s dulcet and lush tones. Mellifluous is almost an onomatopoeic word since it’s one that musically and lusciously falls from the lips as it’s said.

Mellifluous, and your post put me in mind of the quote: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ~Maya Angelou
