Wordly

“Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly — they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”

Other Wordly

I have been perusing the Otherwordly tumblr page quite a bit lately.

What is Otherwordly?
The name Otherwordly comes from ‘otherworldly’, something strange and lovely. So this blog is about strange and lovely words. Sometimes those are words from other languages that can’t be translated. Sometimes they’re words for feelings we’ve felt but never been able to name. Sometimes they’re just words that sound good.

The slideshow below shows a few of my favorite strange and lovely words. What are some of yours? I wonder if I can work some of these into conversation this week? Hmmm. Could be a challenge. And I’m thinking I’d get quite a few strange looks as well.
