Word of the week: Soporific

Share on Pinterest

Soporific (adjective)

“I love this word. According to the Macquarie Dictionary, it means ‘causing or tending to cause sleep’. So you might say that someone’s voice is soporific. Or a particularly boring television show is soporific. Or, for me, listening to my cat purr late at night while he’s cuddling me is certainly soporific.”

And to hear Valerie and Allison chat more about this and more on the world of writing, blogging and publishing, check out this week’s Episode 114 of our podcast, So you want to be a writer.
