Beautiful Words explores the beauty and intrigue of the English language through this collection of the most fascinating words in the English language!

Close your eyes for a moment and think of the word “solitude”. What do you see? A deer drinking from a still pond in the middle of a quiet forest on a sunny day? A small cabin nestled in a group of trees with a warm fire burning in the hearth inside? Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Try doing the same with the word “felicity”, or “ephemeral”. There are so many words in the English language that evoke vivid imagery simply in their pondering. Beautiful Words takes the most beautiful of these words and phrases and actualizes this vivid imagery that they conjure.

In addition to illustrations that perfectly capture the essence of these interesting words, this book will contain examples of beautiful and interesting ways in which they can be used, whether in short poems or brief stories. In addition to “solitude”, “felicity”, “ephemeral”, “epiphany”, and “serendipity”, other featured words include:

- Iredescent

- Miraculous

- Mellifluous

- Demure

- Languor

- Sanguine

And many more! A lovely, winding exploration of the things we say, Beautiful Words will make the perfect gift for anyone in your life who loves language.
