Hey Sparkle Writers. Welcome to another Word Of The Day segment, aka another opportunity to learn a new word.
Today’s word is Plangent and although it sounds pretty strange because we also haven’t heard it before, it means having a loud reverberating sound or having an expressive and especially plaintive quality.
Did You Know?
Plangent adds power to our poetry and prose: the pounding of waves, the beat of wings, the tolling of a bell, the throbbing of the human heart, a lover’s knocking at the door—all have been described as plangent.
The campers were awoken by the plangent howl of a coyote off in the distance.
We hope you use this word soon!
