Do you feel like your vocabulary could do with a little zhushing? Then this is the space for you!
Each week I will unearth a new word to play with. If you would like to join in, write a post incorporating this week's word, then come back and leave a comment with your link so what we can all read your work.
To make it easy for us to find your WW entry, incorporate the button into your post.
Enjoy using your zhushed vocabulary!
[adj.] flowing, like honey.
Sweet or smooth, generally used to describe a person's voice, tone or writing style.
From the latin mellifluus ["flowing like honey"], from mel [honey] + fluo [flow].
Today's word is one of my favourite, not only for the musicality as I say it out loud, but also because I love what it describes. The artwork I've chosen to illustrate this word is by Gina Marie Dunn and is titled 'Your Voice was Smooth; Like Water Running Over Rocks' which evokes dulcet and mellifluous tones in my mind.
Cpt. V has a very mellifluous voice and has often been told that he would be a terrific media presenter.
Do you have a mellifluous voice that you like to listen to? A singer perhaps, or a politician, poet or actor? Maybe you have your own mellifluous voice and will be using it to sing our National Anthem as we celebrate Australia Day.
I look forward to reading your responses and would love it if you wrote this weeks' word on your own blog to share with your readers....spread the word!
