Last year when I asked my Facebook friends what their favorite words are, one friend said she'd always liked prestidigitator [pres-ti-dij-i-tey-tohr]. This noun is another word for magician or conjuror. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time saying it! It's a fun word, though. I even heard it used in conversation a few weeks ago, at our local Pumpkinfest. (Not surprisingly, it was used by a magician during his show.) Here are a few sentences that I came up with using this week's word:
The precocious child piped up,
"I'm going to be a prestidigitator for Halloween!"
The professional prestidigitator performed
incredible feats of magic for his amazed audience.
How would you use this word? What are some of your favorite words?
