Word are used to specify everything around us and to convey our thought and feelings, no mater what language they belong to.
From time to time new words come into existence, to accommodate the new things we create or experience.
Normally we don’t use that many words in our everyday life… Maybe around a thousand or two. But, as they say, words can hold power and there are so may words we aren’t even aware they exist.
Some might mean nothing to most of us, but there are few words who’s meaning can move us in ways we have’t even imagined.
If you don’t think it’s possible, let’s put that to the test.
A traveling website Holidify has gathered 17 word connected to traveling, most of us probably never even heard. Check out their meaning and see what wonders a word can hide.
This is simply trouvaille, wouldn’t you agree?
Thank you for these words and the “art surrounding them. They are lovely and thought provoking.
In re-reading my post, I noticed that the word art has one too few or too many quotation marks.
I read the (what are they?) posters three times and a couple of things caught my attention.
1. A peripatetic can be a he or a she. Perhaps you can find another way to get the full meaning across.
2. The meaning that you’ve given for ‘Psithurism’ is “The sound of word through trees.” Rather incorrect and inelegant, isn’t it? I wonder if you may have meant something like, “The sound wind (whispering? through the trees.”
I’m offering my observations in good faith and I hope they will be taken as such. It’s just that I have been involved with editing text for many years and it’s kind of difficult to switch it off I really like your work.
Yeah, I now see the errors in my post. I guess I don’t edit as
effectively on my iPhone as I do using my big ol’ monitor. I hope I’m done now.
