I can’t believe that two years ago on October 8th I posted my very first Word Nerd (petrichor)! It’s been quite the logophile equivalent of a wild ride, let me tell you. There are just so many words, and so many that I use so regularly that I can forget how amazing they are and take them for granted. (Ennui and Gratitude I’m looking at you). On last year’s anniversary I reminisced about a few of my favorite words from the first year (Yugen, Noetic, Inamorata, Quaintrelle, Pizzazz, and Bibelot.)
This past year was filled with even more gems and I created a better way to present the words and share them on Pinterest on my Word Nerd board. A very limited list of my favorites from this year would have to include Zoetic, Uitwaaien, Supercilious, Quiescence, Felicity, and Bellitude. Seriously, limiting it like that is practically akin to choosing a favorite pet or child or book…the horror (and melodrama, tee-hee)! What have been some of your favorites?
Thank You to everyone who’s been following my Word Nerd adventures ~ You guys have been amazing and I feel quite lucky to have met so many fellow Intellectual Badasses! Here’s to another great year!
Namaste ~ Ella
