Jocularity

Jocularity
Pronounced:
<jock-u-la-rit-tee>

Fun with humor.  Merriment.

My use:

The jocularity in this room is amazing.  It’s nice to see people having fun.

Literary use:
By Fitzgerald
He must have lightened the way with true clerical jocularity. Looking back, as he wrote, the little ordinary incidents of an ordinary journey were quickened into events of a most exquisite humor.


Memory trick:
joc . u . larity

joc (reminds of) = joke
u (reminds of) you
larity (reminds of) clarity or easy to understand
joke you with clarity


Listen: Jocularity
