Hey YD. Interesting thread topic and thankyou!

 

Pompous: Adjective: people that elevate their sense of 'self -importance' These people usually present in a formal and serious way due to their false belief that they are better, smarter, or more important than others

NB: It is amusing to observe pomposity (for myself)

My favourite word for this week is the French word Chocolat

pronounced as, 'show-ko-lah’


Going back over my high school French. I absolutely love this language. 

I like the French language too.  I had 2 years of French in highschool too.  The only other choice of language was German.

Whimsical

 

Meaning something along the lines of curious, quirky, unusual and lightly fanciful or mysterious. I have always liked this word for some reason. I like the sound of it and what it means. It is almost a word unto itself because it is hard to put into words what it means. I associate it with interesting people, songs, movies, creations etc with an air of wonder about them. It feels like it links to the imagination.

I also did French in high school!! I still remember a thing or two, but maybe I should go over it too :))

Now this is a word I should start adding to my daily vocabulary. Isn’t it such a magical word?
