Word of the Day

This is a word I found whilst looking up the meaning of an entirely different, all together more boring word. So rather than bore you with the dull one I'll just share the fun one.


1. A pet name.
2. The practice of using a pet name.
3. The use of forms of speech imitative of baby talk, especially by an adult.
Sentence Example:
Josh found the hypocoristic mannerism his best friend adopted around his girlfriend nauseating.
