Wordy Wednesday!



This weeks Wordy Wednesday word is;

Asomatous


- Incorporeal
- Having no material body
- Immaterial

Asomatous came from the Latin word Asomatus which in turn derived from the Greek word Asomatos, which meant roughly 'disembodied, incorporeal'. Asomatous would have entered the English language sometime in the mid 1700's.

'He stared at the thing in front of him, unbridled terror fixing his feet to the floor and refusing to let him move. The thing, whatever it was, was huge, towering up till it almost touched the ceiling, and it's strange asomatous form seemed to almost waver or wobble in the air.'


Can you use this word in a short piece of prose, flash fiction or poetry?
Comment it below and share the creativity!
