Word of the Week

How I love onomatopoeia!

tohubohu: \TOH-hoo-BOH-hoo\
1. chaos; disorder; confusion.


Learn this: joy is not merely joyful; it is great. So be lovers gaily then, the devil! and marry, when you do marry, with the fever and the dizziness and the uproar and the tohubohu of happiness.
— Victor Hugo, translated by Charles E. Wilbour, Les Misérables, 1862
