Word of the Day

Today's word for all you wordy writers is PIACULAR.

Isn't that a beautiful word?

This is the definition, as provided by the lovely

piacular \pahy-AK-yuh-ler\ , adjective:
1. Expiatory; atoning; reparatory.
2. Requiring expiation; sinful or wicked

The word Piacular is derived from two Latin roots: pia, which is related to the word pious, and a variation of the suffix -cule which denotes a diminutive noun, like particle.

So now your goal is to use this word in a sentence. How about this?

Alicia knew her action merited a piacular action if Lanthian was ever to forgive her.

Now, just to make things interesting use that sentence in a book you are writing.

Fun? I KNOW!

God bless.

See my comment box? Want to know a secret?

*whispers* It's actually a TARDIS comment box! If you write long enough, you'll see... it's bigger on the inside!

Isn't that cool?

Now that you know that, aren't you going to throw a comment in there? You KNOW you want to. :)
