Poem 152 – Playing & Tomorrow – The Joy of Editing!


such erudite english words
magniloquent [indeed]

For poetic inspiration this morning, I searched ‘five syllable word’.

Research: autological


Except, Merrium-Webster says it’s not a word at all! https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/autological, however, it does define autologous: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/autologous

And…magnlioquent means: Grandiose and pompous.

Now, my brain hurts. (I’m feeling cephalalgia.)
