This week’s Fun Monday host is Mothers of Brothers. The topic is favorite words.
I ADORE words, but I’m unable to come up with many “favorites.” I’d like to think this means I’m more concerned about the message I’m portraying with my words, rather than just knowing and using big words. It’s just as likely I’m having a massive brain cramp. 🙂
All definitions are from Merriam-Webster.com.
- conundrum — “an intricate and difficult problem.”
- behoove — “to be necessary, proper, or advantageous for <it behooves us to go>”
- dearth — “an inadequate supply : lack <a dearth of evidence>”
- bereft (this is one my husband reminded me of) — “lacking something needed, wanted, or expected —used with of<the book is…completely bereft of an index”
I’m sure I’ll think of more favorites after this is published, but them’s the breaks. 🙂
So tell us all some of your favorite words.
