Wednesday’s Word of the Week: Darkling

Definition: growing dark or characterized by darkness

Why I Chose It: While for most of us readers Darkling evokes mental pictures of a very attractive Ben Barnes brooding and taking over the world, its actual meaning is very literal and I thought it would be a good one for this week as I was reading The Darkling Thrush by Thomas Hardy the other day for class and my lecturer said that we should try revive the use of the word since it’s kind of dying out. So this is me playing my part in getting darkling back into everyday vocab!

Pronunciation: dar-kling

As always, Stay safe guys!
