Word of the week, 28th March

This week’s word isn’t particularly uncommon, but it’s one I love the sound of.

Superfluous

Soo-per-floo-us; adjective; excessive and unecessary.

I think I like the sound of this word for the emphasis on the “per” bit, because when you say “super” you emphasise the “soo” bit, and that reminds me of soup. Not that I don’t like soup, but it’s not really super. And it’s fun to say “floo-us”.
