Dizen (transitive verb) – to dress someone (or something) up in fine and fancy garments and accessories, jewelry, adornments, etc. (the word originates in Middle English, Middle Dutch, Middle Low German “dise”)

Word in a Sentence: In the novel Choices Meant for Gods, Nigel determines Chariss will be bedizened for her audience with the emperor of Onweald.

Your turn! Give me something beautiful!

Where in the Hell do you find these words? They have a dizening affect on me at times! (No, not my use of the word for the day there though.)

Let's try this:

"I shall dizen my table for our special St. Lucia buffet with the finest porcelain china, crystal goblets, flowers set at each end and the tree candelabra ablaze in the middle as my centerpiece."

Does that work?

Beautiful!

These words...it's the English major in me! I'll have some "normal" ones from time to time as well, but I figured we'd like some bizarre ones. :)
