To throw someone from a window.

By Obsidian WordsPublished 4 months ago 1 min read


I know what the word means but

Saying it is half the fun.

‘To throw someone from a window.’

Rarely a necessary word to use,

And yet it is still my favourite word.

Chances are I will use it in conversation,

The purpose of which is to answer the question ‘what is your favourite word?’

In my defence, English is full of words that are in no way useful and would

Otherwise fade into the background, unless you

Need a rather enthusiastic distraction.

    While defenestration is beyond doubt one of the greatest singular words to grace the English language in my opinion, there are various words I love. Whether I am in a fracas or kerfuffle, or I have been bamboozled and flabbergasted, or the goings-on are rather sanguine or convivial. Words are just fun 😆
