The Wednesday Word - scherzando

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 14 August 2013

Today’s word is scherzando, an adjective which means playful or sportive and comes from an Italian word which means to joke. The term is usually used in relation to music, particularly piano music, but I think it is high time that it was brought out of the sonatas and studies and into general usage (even a verb).

Here is my quote for it:

“He scherzandoed his way through the dinner party with apocryphal anecdotes and barely believable yarns which had the guests in fits of laughter for the whole evening.”

Feel free to let me know if you ever come across a word you think may be appropriate for this part of my blog.
