word of the day - eucatastrophe

JRR Tolkien is said to have come up with this term to describe ‘a sudden and favourable resolution of events in a story; a happy ending’. In a 1944 letter, he explains his coinage: “I coined the word ‘eucatastrophe’: the sudden happy turn in a story which pierces you with a joy that brings tears.” The eu in eucatastrophe is derived from Greek εὐ- meaning ‘good, well’.

‘Tolkien called the gospel account the ‘eucatastrophe’, the happiest of all tragedies, because it satisfies the human heart’s deepest yearnings, including the desire for an epic mythology.’

word of the day - apricate

The infirm state of my bodily health would be a sufficient apology for not taking up the pen at this time, wholesome as I deem it for the mind to apricate in the shelter of epistolary confidence, were it not that a considerable, I might even say a large, number of individuals in this parish expect from their pastor some publick expression of sentiment at this crisis.

-James Russell Lowell, in a satirical piece that appeared in the Atlantic Monthly in February 1863.
