I’m a Lover of Words | April

It has officially been a year since the 1st I’m a Lover of Words last April! What?! Time flies by so fast!

I was thinking about what theme to have for this month and I decided that I wanted to turn around last month’s theme (shorter words/definitions)  and give you guys a couple of  longer words and/or definitions. Here are a few I found:

natsukashii (adj.) suddenly, euphorically nostalgic, triggered by experiencing something for the first time in years.

erlebnisse (n.) the experience, positive or negative, that we feel most deeply, and through which we truly live; not mere experiences, but Experiences.

advesperascit (v.) the approaching dark; the evening draws near.

ichariba chode (phr.) “though we meet but once, even by chance, we are friends for life.”

tintinnabulation (n.) the sound “that so musically wells from belles,bells,bells”; the sound that lingers after a bell has been struck.

hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia (n.) the fear of long words

esprit d’escalier (n.) the witty comeback you think of after the time is past to use it.

librocubicularist (n.) a person who reads in bed.
