Wondrous Words #421

WWWEvery 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.

  1. I’m sitting here trying to figure out how to pronounce encomium because it’s a great word that I think I can use.
