    I just heard *hark* (in the sense of *listen*) in The Piano, last night and I have resolved to include this wonderful word into my normal vocabulary.

    Is that a nomination or were you expressing your unbounded joy at my rediscovery of 'hark'?

    I love 'splendid'.

    Apropos, as an adjective: "That comment was not apropos".
