WOW: Enchant




Monday, August 10, 2009
The WOW (Word of the Week) - enchant - means to fascinate, attract, captivate and enrapture. Likewise, enchant also means to bewitch and subject to magical influence (think the enchanted forest). Therefore, it makes sense that enchant has its roots in the Latin word incantāre (think incantation) which means to put a spell on.
So, when you are introduced to someone new this week, instead of saying "Nice to meet you," try it the French way and respond with Enchanté. Of course, if you aren't enchanted with the person, just say hi and keep it moving. ;-)
