The Closing Word: Encomiastic

The Closing Word: EncomiasticThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you an example of how to use it.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (en-CO-mee-AZ-tick)

formally expressing praise

From “Encomiastic sounds like a fancy, dressed-up word, and it is: it’s usually used in formal situations where someone is describing a person’s most wonderful traits, either in a speech or in writing. The Greek root is encomium, which means a particular kind of storytelling or public speaking that heaps praise on a person or thing.”

“A decade of dedication to exceptional client service yielded many encomiastic online reviews.”
