Hey guys, this room is just for sharing your favourite words with others. This isn't completely random, this is to help people with development of their vocabulary. Here's an example of how to set out your replies.

Necromantic: The appearance or quality of being dead or death-like.
Laments of passion
Obstructed by fear.
Under guises of jovial chatter;
Incredulous hopes
Steadily feasting away-
Eating away at my heart.

I say Wolf, for all wolves are not of the same sort; there is one kind with an amenable disposition – neither noisy, nor hateful, nor angry, but tame, obliging and gentle, following the young maids in the streets, even into their homes. Alas! Who does not know that these gentle wolves are of all such creatures the most dangerous!
— Charles Perrault
