Weird Word Wednesday - Pulchritude


This Wednesday's Weird Word is PULCHRITUDE. Credit goes to Cecily K at and twitter @Cecilyk for giving us the idea and permission to use it.

On Tuesday, Cecily had tweeted:

"Trying to make a word trend: pulchritude. Yep, PULCHRITUDE. It means beautiful. Really." 

So here is our little part in helping to make her wish come true! =) Though in all honesty, Cecily could do just about anything all by herself. We are just happy she is our twitter friend. Oh, and the highlight color is also a nod to Cecily and her wonderfully fun hair. (Am I starting to sound like a stalker now?)

Pulchritude means (beautiful or) physical comeliness. Now I have to look up the word comeliness... or maybe I'll just save it for next Wednesday.


noun \ˈpəl-krə-ˌtüd, -ˌtyüd\

  1. I don't even know where to begin with this word! It just blows my mind. Beautiful, really? SO great. Thanks for sharing Cecily and "The Girls"

  2. Celina Murph - Our pleasure! Thanks for checking it out. Weird words are our "thing" on Wednesday. There are SO many out there that are unusual and underused. We get a kick out of working them into conversations! =)
