I have to admit, I've included this word for its Wow-factor alone. This is a very impressive five syllable weapon to have in your wordie arsenal.
Pulchritudinous: [puhl-kri-tood-n-uhs] adj; beautiful, comely.
Boy this is an adjective of Cyrano proportions. (Yes, that was a nod toward the epic nose!) Imagine the impression a young man could make using this well chosen describer...
"Julie, from the moment I first saw you, I thought you were the most pulchritudinous woman I've ever seen."
Even married guys could benefit from this one!
"No, honey, of course you're not fat; you totally have that pulchritudinous glow of pregnancy!"
