- the state or feeling, often pleasant, of tiredness or inertia.“he remembered the languor and warm happiness of those golden afternoons”
Onomatopoeia is a word that phonetically imitates, resembles or suggests the source of the sound that it describes. This usually describes animal sounds (“moo” and “baa” and even maybe “cock a doodle doo”). Even the old Adam West Batman series had its “pow” and “sock” and “wham”. However, what The Daily Prompt is asking for today is something different. Of words that might sound like what they mean, my favorite is languor. Hearing the word evokes a lazy evening at home after a long day at work. You might be soaking in a warm tub of bubbly water with a glass of wine and Bach piping through the house. It could be curling up with a good book after a long commute in the rain. Regardless of how one enjoys the feeling of pleasant weariness, languor to me sounds like a great way to describe it.
