Word of the week: Stentorian

Stentorian (adjective)

“Do you know what stentorian means? It actually comes from Greek mythology. A stentor was a herald with a loud voice. So the word stentorian is used to describe a loud voice or sound. So you might say that when Darth Vader was angry he expressed this in stentorian tones. Or ‘she barged through the door in a stentorian manner’.”

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 118 of our podcast, So you want to be a writer.
