We're excited to announce this month's winners of our Word Love competition. Thanks to everyone who has submitted their favourite word.
|Winner||Word||Meaning||Why they love it so|
|Will Parker, Winner||Cosmic||Relating to the universe or cosmos, especially as distinct from the earth; Inconceivably vast||"When heard, cosmic conjures up thoughts of other planets and galaxies, aliens, supernatural entities, comic book heroes and exciting unimagined things still to be discovered. It is not just a word but a gateway for the imagination leading to other worlds, concepts and universes."|
|Anne Amlot, Runner Up||Espionage||The practice of spying or of using spies, typically by governments to obtain political and military information||”Whilst not exactly 'onomatopoeia' (another great word), it sounds sly, shifty and secretive, and has to be said in a hushed tone...shhhh!”|
|Samantha Dawe, Honourable Mention||Eponymous||(Of a person) giving their name to something; (Of a thing) named after a particular person or group||”One of those words that is just so useful to have when you are writing a description, and I always notice when other people use it too! For me a strangely satisfying word.”|
|Andrew Frost, Honourable Mention||Bombastic||High-sounding but with little meaning; inflated||”I like it because the first four letters always make me imagine something round (like a bomb from a Tom and Jerry cartoon). The rounded imagery then links to childhood memories of watching Oliver Twist. The arrogant, sadistic beadle in the workhouse, Mr Bumble, seemed to have a very rounded chest.”|
Winner, Will, will receive a Nine Magic Cake Set from Konditor & Cook, London, and Runner Up, Anne, will receive a fancy 'glug' waterbottle.
Please note that if your word didn't win this month, it's still in the running, and you can enter as many times as you like.
