Word Nerd: Nemorivagant

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsynemorivagant-definition-word-nerd-via-lawhimsyNemorivagant combines the terms nemoral (of a wood or grove) and vagant (a wanderer who has no established residence) into one utterly divine word that means wandering through a forest. Nemorivagant is one of many words that stem off of the nemorous (wooded) word – a few others include nemophilist (one who loves the woods) and nemoricolous (living in forests or groves). I suppose it follows that one who nemorivagants is most likely a nemophilist who adores a sylvan setting.

nemorivagant a modern fairytale via LaWhimsyWhite cloak nemorivaganted though the woods, wandering, wistful, hoping for more. A truth that would show Her the way to go, a answer to the question known only to Her soul. Wolves and magic may bite at Her heels, threatening to consume, but so long as She keeps moving forward, She knows She will prevail. ~ Ella

I rather like the word nemorivagant, even if it is a mouthful and truly a bit difficult to use in an casual way. What do you think?

Namaste ~ Ella
