You know, sometimes I just stumble across a word that I really enjoy. This was one of those times. There is no extravagant (ooh, extravagant…. That might be the next word) intro, I just liked this word.

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week! Here, I inform you about a word that I believe is not used enough and how you can use it in a sentence. The word of this week is:


Gasconade: ‘Gasconade’ is a noun. I gasconade, he gasconades, they gasconade, I gasconaded. It means: to brag, to be overconfident of one-self.

Example sentences:

- I gasconade about my writing abilities quite often, but really, I am not that good.

- When he won the bet, he gasconaded about it for weeks.

- I swear, if he keeps gasconading like that, I will kick his ass!
