According to the Phrontistery, nesiote is an obscure word. But defined, nesiote sounds as modern as can be.  It means living on an island. My family trooped to an island for a reunion last year.

This is part of the Fisherman's Village on Elephant Island in Thailand. Nesiote probably applies best to fishermen who live here -

Albert Einstein wishes that "somewhere there existed an island for those who are wise and of good will."

Laurie Anderson claims: "as a New Yorker, I'm someone who lives on an island and looks across to America."

George Gordon Byron in a letter to Thomas Moore mentions "the greenest island of my imagination."

This was rather a grey morning but my reverie was full of bright colors as I maneuvered these rocks. A world-class violinist washes up on shore.  Ladies in Lavender fades to a fact: I just love island - living during holidays.

ABC Wednesday


  1. One of the reasons to join ABC wednesday is to enlarge my vocabulary, specially since english isn't my mother tongue.

  2. I'm so excited about visiting the Isle of Man in the summer and have dreams of living there some day. However, a friend said I might change my tune once I see how isolated it is. Who knows???

  10. Nesiote - that's a new word for me! Thanks for sharing :) Must be nice to be a nesiote ^^

  11. Nesiote is really an interesting word and one would be curious to find out whether the Island is as interesting as its name. Well, there is only one way to find out and that is by making a point to visit the Island.
