50 Beautiful Words To Sprinkle Into Communications

Fifty Words To Help You Flirt Well

Our digital world is swarming with recently made-up words like YOLO and SWAG, plus misappropriated words like ‘awesome’ to mean pretty much everything. This demands that literary types everywhere come out of the woodwork in protest! Here are some luscious and fulsome words to sprinkle liberally into your communications. Alternately you could wield these words as Gandalf would a protective talisman.

All of these words have been hand selected for their dulcet and evanescent beauty. They are not guaranteed to win you any sort of real world success, but they simply exist as objects of far-reaching felicity. Like treasures in museums, some words are so beautiful that they deserve our attention and persistent use.

So find a cosy inglenook or seraglio, preferably in a bucolic setting. Settle down with a cup of tea. There’s a certain natural ebullience that comes with writing like an 18th century dandy.
