Lost Words of Love…

February 15, 2016

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I thought love words were apt for today’s post. Thanks again to – for such a wonderful source of language.

love beach

amorevolous                     1670 -1670

affectionate; loving – Our father, though amorevolous, could be a strict taskmaster at times.

gnathonize                       1619 -1727

to flatter – I can tell that you’re just trying to gnathonize me, you sycophantic buffoon!

mariturient                         1765 -1765

eager to marry – He was beset with offers from several distant cousins who were desperately mariturient.

My sentence – His words did gnathonize me and his gentle touch showed amorevolous, these things told me he was mariturient and I made up my mind to accept upon his proposal.

Can you use the words to make a sentence, a poem or short story?

love heart
