Word of the week, 9th January

This is possibly the earliest I have ever posted a Word of the week, but I just had to share this beautiful word right now.

Quixotism

Kwik-zoh-tih-zum; noun; an action that is extravagantly romantic but also impulsive and unpredictable.

Oh, isn’t it just wonderful? I could think about and say it all day! The “xotism” syllables line themselves up perfectly in your mouth to be said smoothly. Seriously, say “Zoh-tih-zum” slowly and feel how satisfying it is!

Urrgh, I just freaking love language!!
