Favorite Word – 15 January 2022

Today is the perfect day for this week’s Favorite Word. I’m not sharing why, but take my word for it: it is.

And I came across a comic that fits today’s word, too. It made me laugh out loud, so with the hope that it gives you a giggle, here’s this week’s word and the comic:

I love learning new words myself, which is why I do My Favorite Words, and I don’t really get any feedback, but truly I’d love to know if you know the words I share, or if you’ve learned a new word. πŸ™‚


I began reading at a young age, thanks to parents who read to me and provided me with books. And fortunately,Β  the local library indulged my addiction, even allowing me to take out books “above my grade level.” So it’s no surprise that my stories might have a few “big words.” I don’t consciously try to use bombastic vocabulary (by the way, I learned bombastic from a comic book, thankyouverymuch), but if a word fits the situation or conversation, I’ll use it.

If you haven’t yet read any of my books and are curious about the vocabulary therein, check out either of my series:

Deuces Wild (space opera)

The Sword’s Edge Chronicles (epic science fantasy)
