As words are the way we can express ourselves, if you hope to be more successful in life, or just want to be understood more clearly, it's important to expand your vocabulary.
These seven particular words are truly spectacular and you really should start using them on a regular basis.
Imbroglio refers to a very complicated, confusing or embarrassing situation. For example, "that police officer found it hard to understand the imbroglio that caused the two neighbors to begin throwing rotten eggs at each other."
Limerence refers to the intense infatuation felt in the very early stages as a romance. For example, "She was feeling an incredible sense of limerence toward her new boyfriend."
Of course, those feelings of limerence usually don't last long. Ephemeral means something that lasts for just a very short time. "My feelings about him were ephemeral; they left as quickly as they arrived."
Petrichor refers to that wonderful smell that follows the rain. "The air was ripe with the pleasant, dewy petrichor of the post-rain afternoon."
Mellifluous refers to a smooth, pleasant, musical sound: "When the snakes heard the mellifluous sounds coming from the flute, they began to crawl back into the basket."
That strange wistfulness of used bookstores, which are somehow infused with the passage of time: filled with thousands of old books you’ll never have time to read, each of which is itself locked in its own era, bound and dated and papered over like an old room the author abandoned years ago.
“The moment the scent of lignin hit her nostrils she was overcome with vellichor."
Propinquity means nearness in place or time.
"The propinquity of Emma's bedroom to that of her parents’ makes it difficult for her to sneak out of the house at night."
