Word of the Day

It is not a good thing when you are translating along in a foreign language and come across a word you have no idea how to translate.  It is a far worse matter when you look up the translation for that word and discover that you don’t even know what the definition of that word is in your native tongue.  So…

ἐγκώμιον means “encomium.”  In fairness, the English word is derived from the Greek word (it is a transliteration).

An encomium is defined as “A speech or piece of writing that praises someone or something highly.”

And that’s today’s Word of the Day.
