Welcome to Word of the Week! I hope you guys enjoyed reading last week's post as much as I loved writing it. As a writer and (self-proclaimed) wordsmith, I'm absolutely fascinated by obscure and felicitous words; it's so much fun discovering them, exploring their derivations and, most importantly, getting to share them with all of you.
Definition: the warmth of the sun in winter
This week's word comes from the Latin meaning "to bask in the sun" and, I must say, it is a beautiful one. Apricity has long been one of my favourite words because it describes something so simple and yet incredibly sublime. My poetical brain can see such potential for an amazing extended metaphor that it could be used for!
If you liked this series, be sure to check back next Monday for a fab new word.
