Word of the Week: Polyhistor

It’s been a while!

This word exists and it’s beautiful! I was not even aware of the Greek scholar by the name of Lucius Cornelius Alexander Polyhistor.

But I am glad that I came across this word and although it would fit better as my last name, I’ll try to use it in a sentence:

Gary did not attain his Degree, but he is considered a Polyhistor by many.

Word of the Week: Kalopsia

It was love at first sight with this attractive Greek-looking word. *sigh*

Kalopsia is a combination of the Greek roots kallos (beauty) and opsis (sight), so technically in English, it means beautiful sight. Even the word is beautiful. Let me take a moment to reflect on the beauty of this word.

I love coming across strange words! They intrigue me and I sometimes add them to my vocabulary. So here is my attempt at using this beautiful word in a sentence:

She was obviously suffering from kalopsia for she saw the world in him although he treated her harshly.

Word of the Day: sarcophagus

I am in love with words. Long words. I like spending time trying to pronounce the word accurately before using it in a sentence. Thanks to The Mummy, I can’t unhear today’s word. >.<

MEANING

A stone coffin (that is associated with the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Rome, and Greece).

Sarcophagus in a sentence

The tomb raider tangled in front of the ancient mummy’s sarcophagus as it was being lifted out of its prison.
