Every week word-lovers post new words they’ve discovered while reading. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday and was created by Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog.
I found this word while reading a review for the book Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein:
encomium: “I knew there had to be a reason for all the encomiums so I kept going, and was richly rewarded for it.”
Encomium means a speech or piece of writing that praises someone or something highly.
