Word of the day : magniloquent

| 1 Comment
I'm doing some research for a series of posts I hope to start doing in the near future, and came across the word magniloquent used to describe over-the-top imagery found in 1800s French poetry.  A very cool word, don't you think?  It means exactly what it sounds like it should :

Lofty or grandiose in speech or expression; using a high-flown style of discourse; bombastic.
