Word of The Day

I collect words. I have very few outlets for a lot of them, seeing as I generally either can't use them in my writing or only sparingly; so, I've decided to share them here on days I have nothing to blog about or I'm feeling lazy. Maybe you'll learn a new word. Or maybe you'll find a use for one or more of them.

Today's word: Lugubrious

"1: Mournful ; especially : exaggeratedly or affedtedly mournful.
2: Dismal - a lugubrious landscape."

Those of you with kids may recognize this from the Disney movie Hercules. The character Pain has a line in which he says to Hades: "Coming, your most lugubriousness."

Reminds me of loquacious (obviously only the sound of it, not the meaning!). Great word!

It is similar in sound to loquacious Stephanie! What fun words.

Shelli: I hope you can! They're great words.
