  • Chimerical – merely imaginary; fanciful.
  • Susurrus – a whispering or rustling sound.
  • Raconteur – one who excels in story-telling.
  • Clinquant – glittering; tinsel-like.
  • Aubade – a song greeting the dawn.
  • Ephemeral – lasting a very short time.
  • Sempiternal – everlasting; eternal.
  • Euphonious – pleasing; sweet in sound.
  • Billet-doux – a love letter.
  • Redamancy – act of loving in return.

Just a bit of fun, found this on tumblr thought I would share, since I didn’t know that any of these existed

Here are a few things I’ve learned over the years:
* Farther vs. further. Farther = physical distance. Further = abstract lengths. (“We need to drive farther down the road.” “Let’s discuss this further tonight.”)
* Everyday vs. every day. “I go to the park every day.” “These shoes are great for everyday wear.”
* Literally. Most things aren’t actually literally true. “I was literally dying with laughter.” Probably not.

Also for all the other writers  who read this – I found a really cool website http://www.wordhippo.com/ helps find Find opposite or similar words for any word you want to use. – pure awesomeness

  1. Thank you for sharing those words! I’ve never heard of any of them, and I would remember them because they definitely stand out… susurrus in particular, haha.
