Isn’t this a pretty sounding word and a pretty looking word? I love the double ss. The meaning is also pretty. It is a musical term meaning
This is a happy little bouncy word with lots of syllables — almost illustrating its meaning, which is “a large group or chain of islands.”
There is something about this word that is just pleasing to me; I think it is the q sound in it. When you say the word out loud, it almost becomes its meaning, which is “having or exercising the power of fluent, forceful, and appropriate speech.” Not something we have much of here on this blog!
Isn’t this a wonderful word for a funny little animal? The “dillo” part is what does it for me. I saw some great photos of an armadillo recently on Lisa’s Chaos — they are so cute but weird-looking at the same time. nap
Chosen for its meaning. I’m the older mother of an active 4-year-old boy — ’nuff said.
So what words are wonderful to you!
