Word of the Day
Thursday, March 15, 2007
Myriad (adjective) – Indefinite (but presumably large) number of something; you can have myriad joys in life! (from Greek)

Word in a sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Hrazon and Chariss have found myriad benefactors willing to offer them shelter over the years as they’ve fled from the sorcerer Jamieson Drake.

Your turn! There are myriad sentences you could write! But note that you add extra words around ‘myriad’ only to turn it into a noun. For example, “a myriad of joys,” is correct if you’re making it a noun instead of an adjective, and the noun is the archaic, out-of-date use of the word.

“Some days, I just want the dragon to win.”

Out of the myriad of words available to use as "word for the day" this one happens to be one of my all-time favorites! Just ask my kids, they'll tell you rarely does a conversation pass that I haven't used the word myriad in it! (And in a myriad of ways too!)
