Beautiful Words That Express Unusual Feelings

Beautiful words that express unusual feelings are explained in the list below.

Beautiful words that express unusual feelings

 

Farouche

Pronounced ‘faroosh’, it’s an adjective of French origin. It means ‘sullen or shy in the company of others’. Though it’s something we all have to go through at some point of time, a farouche person isn’t comfortable opening up to people quickly.

For example: Though he is a farouche guy, he is a completely different person with animals.

 

Nonplussed

Pronounced ‘nonplust’, it’s an adjective of Latin origin. It means ‘surprised and confused and not knowing how to react’. We go through this when we receive news that we hadn’t expected in our wildest dreams.

For example: She was totally nonplussed when she came to know that she had got the scholarship.

 

Gushy

It’s an adjective that means ‘expressing approval in a very enthusiastic way’. Aren’t we all gushy when we know that we have landed our dreams?

For example: She was all gushy when he stood beaming in front of her with a ring.

 

Vicarious

It’s an adjective of Latin origin that means ‘experienced in the imagination, through the feelings or actions of another person’. This would be common occurrence for an avid book or movie lover.

For example: You think I don’t know how it feels to lose a loved one? What do you think I felt when Katniss lost Prim?

 

Idée fixe

It’s a noun of French origin that’s pronounced ‘ee-day feeks’. It means ‘an idea that dominates someone’s mind; an obsession’. This is very unusual and more serious than just an earworm.

For example: Schizophrenics have peculiar idée fixes that makes them suspicious of everything.

 

Quiescent

Pronounced ‘kwi-ess-uhnt’, it’s an adjective of Latin origin. It means ‘a state or period of inactivity’. We all need a quiescent break from our busy lifestyle every once in a while, don’t we?

For example: The winter was a quiescent affair compared to the hustle and bustle of summer.

 

Louche

It’s an adjective of French origin that’s pronounced ‘loosh’. It means ‘having a bad reputation but still attractive’. It’s a human tendency. After all, Eve chose the apple.

For example: Most teen girls have an infatuation for a louche celebrity.

 

Jejune

Pronounced ‘jijoon’, it’s an adjective of Latin origin. It means ‘naïve and simplistic’. We always have this one person in our class or office who is jejune, right?

For example: Every mother’s instinct is to think that her child is too jejune to be let out in the world.

The top 25 positive words in English

The top 25 positive words in English

positive words

The English language is full of many beautiful and positive words. Often these words trigger a specific memory, pleasant thought or a dream in our minds. The words that appeal to us are often very personal and the feelings they trigger are essentially unique to you. Here is my list of the top 25 words that appeal to me.

Ineffable

Ineffable means too great or extreme to be described or expressed in words. It reflects that feeling of awe such as what you feel when your first child is born.

serendipity

Serendipity is used to describe the occurrence and development of events by chance in a beneficial or happy way. That stroke of luck that comes at exactly the right time, out of the blue.

Ethereal

Ethereal means extremely light and delicate so that something appears not to be of this world. I associate this word with heavenly and beautiful things, such as dragonfly wings or a voice that gives you chills.

 

Iridescent

positive words Iridescent Iridescent is a word to describe seeing luminous colors that change when seen from different angles. This positive word reminds me of carefree days blowing bubbles and watching them float away.

Epiphany

Epiphany is that sudden moment of realization or revelation. That light-bulb moment that often changes your life. Everyone needs an epiphany now and then.

Luminescence

Luminescence is when a substance gives off light without being heated such as phosphorescence and fluorescence. The fun of chasing lightning bugs or stirring up the sea and being rewarded with an eerie green glow.

Eloquence

Eloquence is persuasive and fluent in writing and speaking. Don’t we all wish to be eloquent at the right times? What a bonus when you can give a speech and engage your entire audience!

Sonder

Sonder is the realization that every random passer-by is living a vivid, complex life full of their own ambitions, worries, friends and routines, in which you might be an extra on a park bench or a lit office on their route. As a people watcher, this positive word resonates.

Effervescence

Effervescence means enthusiastic and vivacious, and also the bubbles in your fizzy drink. This reminds me of the excitement of a child, perhaps even tasting their first fizzy drink.

Magnanimous

Magnanimous means being forgiving or generous to someone who is not a friend or is less powerful than you. I think we all need to be magnanimous and this world would be a better place.

Benevolent

Benevolent means being kindly and well meaning. Similar to magnanimous, except this kindness being expressed to anyone. Being benevolent has its own rewards, and it makes you feel great too.

Amusement

Amusement means enjoying entertainment or finding something funny. The world needs more laughter and we should be able to find amusement in most situations, even laugh at ourselves.

Contentment

Contentment is a state of satisfaction and happiness. I believe that for most of us, life is about striving for contentment. Appreciate the small things to find contentment in your daily life.

Determination

Determination is a firmness of purpose. Achieving anything in life takes determination. Set the goal and succeed through determination.

Dignity

Dignity is being worthy of respect or honor. I like to believe everyone should be afforded basic dignity as a right especially our elders, who have so much to share if we listen.

Flourishing

Flourishing means thriving, developing successfully and rapidly. We all want something to flourish: flourishing bank balance, perhaps a flourishing business, a flourishing garden. What a versatile and evocative word.

Harmonious

positive words Harmonious

Harmonious has three lovely meanings tuneful, forming a pleasing whole, free from dissent and disagreement. I like the peaceful feel this word has, like music from a waterfall.

Lustrous

Lustrous is basically a nicer word for shining. I like to think of this positive word as being used for hair and eyes, giving a description extra depth and reflection. Who wouldn’t want lustrous hair?

Noble

Noble has a number of meanings, but I like the one which refers to a person showing high moral principles or good personal qualities. I like to think that our aim as humans should be to strive to be noble.

Respect

Respect is the feeling of admiration due to their abilities, achievements or qualities. It also refers to giving the necessary regard for other people’s rights and feelings. Although for most people, respect is something that is earned, but we should offer basic respect to all humans.

Laughter

Laughter is the sound of someone laughing. This sounds more than almost any other has a way of lifting spirits. Laughter is contagious and makes us feel good.

Tranquility

positive words Tranquility

Tranquility is the state of being calm and tranquil. We all need this sort of peace in our lives now and then to regroup.

Unconditional

Unconditional means there are no conditions attached. I prefer this word as part of the phrase unconditional love. A love that transcends everything, there are no ifs and buts, a love that offers everything without demanding anything.

Smiling

Smiling is laughing in a smaller, quieter way. Turning those corners of the mouth up showing a happy look. Smiling is also contagious, and when it is genuine, it lights up your whole face.

Hope

Hope is the expectation that something will happen. Even when situations are dire, keeping hope alive is what makes the human spirit fight through the worst of situations. Never lose hope.

Those are my top 25 positive and uplifting words, what are yours?

Effervescent

This word comes at the top of this list because it is one of my favourites. Effervescent means for something or someone to be bubbly and excitable. It reminds me of luxurious champagne and laughs, I believe that it is one of those words that does what it says on the tin and makes you feel the way that it sounds.

 

Eloquence

To be eloquent has a regal and poised tone to it. Eloquence is to be well spoken and fluent in the language that you speak in. Even the way that it rolls off of the tongue is articulate.

 

Serenity

This word on its own transports me to a calm, peaceful beach. It reminds me of ocean sounds and walking along the sand in a hot place (being from England all a girl can do is imagine). This word allows me to go to that place and escape the rain!

 

Giggle

Giggle is a silly word that gives a fun feeling alongside it. Friendship, excitement and cheerfulness come to mind when I hear this word.

 

Unity

In the world that we live in today, this is possibly one of the most important words in the English Language. Coming together as one might not fix all of the problems in the world, but it is sure to go a long way.

4 Most Beautiful Words from the English Language

Beautiful Words

I found this post on twitter today:

The 4 most beautiful words in English language from this tweet are:

AURORA (n.) down.

INEFFABLE (adj.) too great to be expressed in words.

ETHEREAL (adj.) extremely delicate, light, not of this world.

JOUSKA (n) a hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in your head.

The words aurora, ethereal and jouska were not added to the list of positive words and I need to add them. The word jouska can be a positive word if it is a happy, joyful and positive hypothetical conversation.

Have a lovely day. Hope you enjoy this tweet.
