Today’s Monday Musings is my word of the day. The word for today is quite interesting, at least in my opinion.
WORD OF THE DAY:
Adjective: Displaying madness, suicidal tendencies, and similar characteristics.
Taken from Ophelia, a character in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, who is driven to insanity and kills herself.
Earliest documented use of this word was in 1903.
What do I find so interesting about this word? What a way to tell someone that they are a bit mad!
“Mark really needs to stop acting so Ophelian or he will lose all his creditability with the committee.”
I hope you have lots of fun with this word! Happy reading!
