Favorite Word Friday #9 "Adieu"

Adieu

noun \ə-ˈdü, a-, -ˈdyü\

:an expression of good wishes when someone leaves

Adieu is almost a sad word, isn't it? We typically think of it as French for "goodbye" but I like the way Merriam Webster describes it; an expression of good wishes. That sounds so much nicer than simply goodbye, doesn't it?

I really love the sound "adieu." It just rolls off the tongue in a lovely way, as much of the French language does. I especially love hearing it in the Eisley song "Ten Cent Blues."





Thank you for reading and have a wonderful weekend!
