Keep your Fridays funky and fresh…and nerd out with your word out. ;D
lugubrious (adj.) : “mournful, dismal, or gloomy, especially in an affected, exaggerated, or unrelieved manner.”
What a meandering word. Just takin’ its sweet time getting anywhere. It’s almost slimy on purpose for the sake of being annoying. Like that little kid — sibling, neighbor, cousin, summer camper, etc. — you take care of whose limbs weigh 1000 lbs. when they don’t want to do anything.
The Word Wizard Philosophy: The purpose of language is to communicate. An expanded vocabulary allows you to express yourself more precisely and have greater conversational satisfaction. Unfortunately, people often use big words to intimidate rather than connect. So what to do if you’re word nerd? Lend some context, and have fun with it. You can still indulge in your nerdy desires if you help your listeners and readers with responsible dosage.
