Word Nerd : Dulciloquent

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsy


Dulciloquent word nerd via LaWhimsyDulciloquent (or dulciloquence) derives from the Latin form loqui which means to speak, and in this case, it means to speak in a sweet manner. While I’m sure that dulciloquent can refer to using a cloying, saccharine sort of tone, I’d prefer to think of it as utilizing a rich, beautiful vocabulary and having a lovely tone to the voice as one expresses themselves in a kind and capable sort of manner.

Certainly, one who is felicitous in manner would naturally become dulciloquent in their mode of expression…at least that’s what I like to believe. I think that dulciloquence is something that a quaintrelle has, simply because they love to share their thoughts and feelings in a friendly, cheerful way and they listen with the same sort of lively and engaging spirit.
