Hello Sparkle Writers, it’s Wednesday! Today’s word is one of the easiest word to pronounce but for some reason it looks really complex especially if you are just hearing it for the first time. See why you need to keep following our word of the day posts? There’s always something new to add to your vocabulary.
Lagniappe is pronounced /lăn′yəp, lăn-yăp′/.
It means a small gift given to a customer by a merchant at the time of a purchase. Broadly, it is something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure.
Let’s look at some examples.
- The waiter added a cup of lobster bisque as a lagniappe to the meal.
- As a loyal customer I requested for a lagniappe when I visited during Christmas.
