3 of the Most Beautiful Words in the English Language

Ditch the dictionary! Big words don’t impress, they just sound…well, big.

The true magic lies in unearthing the secret treasures of English—words that dance, sparkle and sing!

Ready to discover three of them?

Take ‘luminous’ for example. Shining in the dark. Giving out light. Imagine a diamond catching the moonlight, casting a magical glow.

And ‘ephemeral?’ Lasting for a very short time. It’s like a butterfly’s delicate wings fluttering in the breeze, gone in a blink of the eye! 

Or ‘mellifluous?’  Pleasingly smooth and musical to hear. It’s like the chirping of birds in the early spring or the gentle flow of a meandering stream, soothing and harmonious.

English might not have endless compound words, but it borrows the best from everywhere, giving us a word for every little thought or feeling!

Cool, don’t you think?

What about YOU? Which words transport you to another worldmake your heart skip a beat or paint a picture in your mind?
