I overwhelmingly love a great superlative. While you may not know the awesome word “superlative,” I have no doubt you use them on a frequent basis. I find myself returning to them over and over again to give delightful definition and extraordinary enunciation to what I want to say. I often end emails with them and shout one as a momentous battle cry to friends journeying along the Narrow Way.
So what IS a superlative? The official definition is an adverb or adjective expressing “the highest quality or degree,” but that’s obviously not saying much (or perhaps too much). Simply, a superlative is one of those magical words used to convey the incredibleness of something.
“Wow! That’s soooo cool!” “Totally narley dude.” “That is absolutely marvelous.” “You are one bodacious brother.” Yep, superlatives. And if you’re like me, you use them all the time.
I’ve been compiling a list of grand and glorious superlatives – see below (so if you have a new one not on the list – feel free to comment and add it!). And may your day be filled to overflowing with the divine, fantastic, illustrious, incomparable, outrageous, stupendous love and life of Jesus!
Out of this world
