Samhainophobia (n): An irrational fear of Halloween, despite being aware there's no risk. Samhain was the ancient pagan autumnal festival of the dead, which later became Halloween. I discovered this word yesterday, good timing eh?! . #WordoftheWednesday #wordoftheweek #samhainophobia #samhain #halloween #ilovewords #wordnerd #autumnalwords #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram

𝒮𝑒𝓇𝑒𝓃𝒹𝒾𝓅𝒾𝓉𝓎. One of my favourite words! ⁣ ⁣ If I was a #mylittlepony, I think this would be my name. I'd probably be a unicorn with a special knack for making good things happen for those around me. ⁣ ⁣ ... but I'm not a pony, so I'm going to just say serendipity is when the words are flowing just right and your writing becomes something magical. ⁣ ⁣ #randomword #wordoftheweek #serendipity #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #creativewriting #writer #writers #write #writing #words #writerslife #mlpfim #freelancewriter #writerforhire #inspiration #learnsomethingneweveryday #writespiration #wordsmith #words #prose #lovewriting #lovewords #ilovewords #mlpfan #mlpfim

Time for some fun with the whole alphabet. I've learnt now this is called a pangram: a short sentence that contains every letter in the English language. And here I was thinking the only pangram was "a quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"! 🦊🐶 But looks like some very clever wordsmiths have constructed many alphabet soup sentences. "Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs" is a good one. QOTD: Do you know any? I've got a few more up my sleeve ... to come later. Because word-nerdy thoughts like this make me smile. I'm posting a new one every Wednesday - chosen, of course, for its excellent alliteration: #WeirdWordWednesdays. Enjoy, fellow word nerds. #wordweirdness #funwithwords #wordnerd #ilovewords #welltold_au #pangram

When silence speaks louder than words 😶. If you refer to someone's tacit agreement or approval, you mean they are agreeing to something or approving it without actually saying so, often because they are unwilling to admit to doing so. Holding hands might be a tacit acknowledgment that a boy and girl are dating. This is used quite often in legal terminology. Tacit agreement, (mentioned above) where parties give their silent agreement. Tacit collusion, where 2 competitors have unspoken rules to minimise competitive retaliations. Tacit consent, which is given by actions that imply consent, as an example, if I play monopoly I tacitly accept to play by their rules(I don’t 😂), when I enter another country I tacitly accept their laws etc. There's also tacit knowledge, which is knowledge that's difficult to express or extract, meaning its more difficult to transfer to others by means of writing it down or verbalising it. This can include personal wisdom, experience, insight, and intuition. This originates from Latin “tacitus” which means “that is passed over in silence, done without words, assumed as a matter of course. silent,” and is a past participle of “tacēre” meaning “to be silent” . Then picked up in middle French as “Tacite” and moved over to English as Tacit. “The rules of friendship are tacit, unconscious; they are not rational. In business, though, you have to think rationally.” - Steven Pinker Soooo tacitly share this 😊 #wordaholics #wordoftheday #tacit #implicit #ilovewords

One of the best words I’ve ever made up. (Of course it wasn’t accepted as a legit puzzle answer;) A descriptor of what’s happened to many of us—all of us?—over the last few years. Well, hell…just noticed there are a hundred posts with an “antimacy” hashtag. We’re never as original as we might think…great minds... #ilovewords #nytspellingbee

“One thing I'm sure Colborne will never understand is that I need language to live, like food—lexemes and morphemes and morsels of meaning nourish me with the knowledge that, yes, there is a word for this. Someone else has felt it before.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — M.L. Rio, If We We’re Villains ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m never sure how to explain my love affair with words to people who don’t share it. When I hear others describe their experience of nature or music, it sounds similar. As if the universe has opened itself wide to gift you something holy. A perfectly crafted sentence is my sunset, my symphony. Necessary proof that this earth is more than a big spinning ball of dirt and water, and we humans more than flesh and bone. Words, stories—they’re more than ink and sound. They forge links between souls. #ifwewerevillains #darkacademia #darkacademiaaesthetic #darkacademiabooks #darkacademiabookstagram #thesecrethistory #wordsmatter #wordsmiths #wordsmithing #booksmatter #whyiread #whyiwrite #wordart #wordgasms #wordsgasm #wordlover #wordlovers #wordsarespells #wordsarelife #wordsaremagic #wordshavepower #wordsheal #autumnreading #autumnreads #octoberreads #halloweenreads #ilovewords #ilovebooks📚 #poetryloversunite
