Bucolic is listed on Dr Goodword's alphaDictionary as one of the most beautiful words in English. I typed it on google images and as I strayed, like I usually allow myself to when leisurely searching, I was led to words that reflect concepts appealing to me:

1. eclogue
2. denouement

3. cynosure
4. pianoforte

5. palimpsest
6. onomatopoeia

7. riparian
8. inglenook

9. petrichor
10. lilt

11. arcadian
12. vintage

13. Jenny what else but my idol Jane Austen's nickname :-)

Share your Thursday Thirteen list with Megan and Janet.


  1. And you don't play Quilly's Three Word Thursday! LOL. You should pads these on to her :)

  2. Quilly's Three Word Thursday is for experts, Thom. I don't have to find a dictionary for a pianoforte lol!

  3. Ah, I do love a good vocab word. I think denouement is among my favorites. Lascivious is another good one.

    My post

  4. Inglenook is an interesting word. :)

  5. Grin. What fun! Lots of good words.

  6. Here I go searching out the meanings of some of these 'new to me' words. Love word lists. Happy T13!

  7. Palimpsest is new to me. I like the concept, the way the old holds out in face of the new.

  8. Brenda, I had fun doing this list too

    Adelle, so do I. I should done word lists sooner

    Alice, it is to me too. And I like it as something of a reminder of the past

  9. I have always disliked the word Bucolic and thought it doesn't sound like what it means.

    I just now got lost in the world of Palimpsest. That was fun.

  10. colleen, I think of colic and babies when I read bucolic :D I'm glad you had fun with palimpsest.

  11. I must say bucolic is not one of my favorite words! This is an interesting idea for a TT and a great word list. Some of those I do like a lot!

  12. I do not understand this post :(
    I think its my age ........ LOL

  13. denouement is so fun to say. but so is accoutrement. :)
    i also like the words surreptitious, copacetic and covet.
    I am such a word nerd.

  14. Thanks, countrydew

    Melissa, thanks

    jehara, thanks for copacetic. it's new to me
