WotD: 10 Words You Loved Most this Year

By December 8, 2015 Language, Word of the Day

One of our most popular features here on site is the Word of the Day section. We work hard to find unique and interesting words, and for the most part you love hearing the daily word and adding it to your vocabulary. Our words are chosen for all sorts of reasons, sometimes because they are ridiculously long, sometimes because they are archaic, but often just because we like the way they roll off the tongue.

We’ve been relaunched on the new site since March now, that’s a lot of Word of the Day posts! So I thought I’d go through the stats and see what your ten favourite words are. By favourite, I included the ten words that have received the most hits in this section including social media and search engine hits.

1. Vellichor

Maybe it’s only right that a word about bookshops would be the one you loved the most.
