Word of the week, 20th March

Today I asked the editor at my work placement what her favourite word is.


Ver-ih-sih-mih-lih-tyood; noun; the appearance of truth.

Sometimes you just like a word and have no explanation why, but I like this word because it has many syllables. I think having too many syllables is why some words go out of use, people are too lazy to say all of it. Just look at how “t”‘s have been dropped across the English language. Thank goodness for words like verisimilitude.
