As an author, I am many things: wordsmith, editor, storyteller, and marketer. But two of my favorite are:
So, nothing makes me happier than having to research a 'new to me' word.
Last week, I was chatting with Stephanie Affinito (author, bookologist, podcaster at A Lit Life), and she told me about her Patreon community's word for July. CONJUBILANT
Shouting together with joy
I had never heard of this word, but I don't feel too badly. My spellcheck right now is insistent that conjubilant is not a word and keeps suggesting consultant, connubiality (another word I had to look up!), and convulsant.
The etymology of conjubilant is con + jubilant. Con = together. Jubilant = make a joyful noise. It is listed as archaic, which would also explain why I hadn't heard of the word before - but it's a great word, so maybe Stephanie and I can bring it back!
Just imagine all the uses:
Because of this word, Stephanie's group will be doing more as a group during the month of July so they can celebrate one another.
What can you do to put the word conjubilant into action in the coming weeks? Be sure to let me know what you decide.
And do you have a word to share? Add it in the link below.
