Favorite Word – 18 July 2020

This week’s word is lovely and very old. Its roots can be traced back through French to Latin.

benison

And I’m going to give you two-fer by sharing another word that also traces its roots back through French to Latin. (I learned this word first when I read Hamlet.)

orison

Can you guess why I’m giving the two-fer?

I really would like to hear some of your favorite words! There’s a good chance I’ll add them to my list for future posts, unless I’ve already posted them.

If you haven’t yet read any of my books and are curious if there’s vocabulary in there that might be new to you, check out either of my series:

Deuces Wild (space opera)

The Sword’s Edge Chronicles (epic science fantasy)
