Ethereal [ih-theer-ee-uh l] is an adjective that can mean "light, airy, or tenuous" or "extremely delicate or refined". Here are a few sentences I came up with, using the word:
The spiderweb sparkled in the morning sunshine,
an ethereal masterpiece of nature.
An ethereal specter floated in front of my eyes,
confirming my suspicions that the house was haunted.
The young girl's pale face and large dark eyes
gave her appearance an ethereal look.
How would you use the word ethereal? Can you think of other synonyms besides the ones listed in the definition?
