Wordy Wednesday!


Vaunting

- Boastful
- Excessively praising something
- Marked by boastful pride


Vaunting comes originally from the Latin vanitare and vanus, meaning vain, and from the Middle French vanter, which means to boast. It is thought to have entered English in the late 1500's.

'Mark took an involuntary step back, cringing inwardly at Sarah's vaunting words as she flung them through the air and they bounced from the walls as if echoing and confirming themselves.' 


Can you use this word in a short piece of prose, flash fiction or poetry?
