Somnolent sounds like a torpid, lethargic word, so it’s definition is an easy one to remember (and yawn when saying). When I think of somnolent, I think of the long, boring sermons that peppered my childhood church-goings or of long-winded political “discussions” that are one-sided at best and just go in very boring circles. I picture overly warm Summer afternoons spent in somnolent stupors or very cold Winter days where one can feel quite somnolent while curled-up underneath mountains of blankets as the weather does what it will outside.
