I love this word. It’s defined as: placing too much emphasis on trivial or minor details; fussy.
And for some reason – when I hear this word – that’s exactly what I think of. It’s the kind of word that somehow sounds exactly like (well, not exactly like – that’s onomatopoeia – and yes, I had to look up how to spell that) what it represents. Or perhaps a better words would be conjures (ooh, another fun word!) up the feeling of what it represents.
Wow, I am a serious word nerd. But I’m not too persnickety about grammar. 🙂
What’s a word that makes you think about exactly what it represents?
