I’m not sure I’ve ever seen this word used in a sentence, and I’m almost sure I’ve never personally used it in my life, but that’s too bad because it’s a cool word:
vel·le·i·ty / vəˈlēədē, veˈlēədē / Learn to pronounce noun
- A wish or inclination not strong enough to lead to action.
- “The notion intrigued me, but remained a velleity”
How about that? Have any of you ever used this word or heard it used? I need to start watching for chances to drop velleity into an ordinary conversation.
