Pulchritudinous

1 Comment

Definition:

possessing great physical beauty or appeal

Description:

Although it doesn’t seem to sound very pretty, this word means ‘beautiful’! The root of the word, pulcher, is Latin for “beautiful,” but the use as an adjective appears to be of an American origin, dating sometime between 1910-1915.

    I love the word pulchritudinous — I think it a beautiful word and since I discovered it, I am using it — have received some interesting comments — all do not know what it means — I say “look it up” my dear.
