ineffable (adj.)

Expressive Typographyineffable: (adj.) too great or extreme to be expressed or described in words

There’s something ineffable about the word ‘ineffable’; like it’s denotation, ‘ineffable’ stands for something greater, something more brilliant, something indescribable.

Her beauty is ineffable.

At that moment, my happiness was ineffable.

His anguish was ineffable.

It’s the extremeness of emotions or dispositions that warrants the use of the word ‘ineffable’. To which I can only say:

Life is ineffable.

(Perhaps that’s why we try to describe with our many words, yet nothing seems to illustrate quite as well the magnitude of living.)

I’m on a roll this week! First time trying out Word for Wednesday.
