From William

Words are what makes our life work.

We have words for everything and everybody.

So, let us give you a CHALLENGE OF WORDS!!

This will increase your vocabulary for one.

For two, you will just maybe learn something and as I have been told and shared many times before:

“A day should never go by without either a lesson learned, or a challenge ignored”.


The proper PRONUNCIATION would be:

  • AUBADE is a NOUN

The DEFINITION would be:

  • AUBADE is defined as = “a poem or piece of music appropriate to the dawn or early morning”.

The ORIGIN of the word AUBADE would be:

  • The word AUBADE comes from the late 17th century; and is of Spanish origin.
  • The ETYMOLOGY of AUBADE says it derives from the French and Spanish word albada, or from alba meaning ‘dawn’.

The HISTORY of the word AUBADE would be:

  • SYNONYMS for AUBADE = song, poem.
  • An ANTONYMS for the word AUBADE would be nocturne.

Using the word AUBADE in a sentence:

  • Example would be = “She was the recipient of a lovely AUBADE as the sun rose.”

Remember to add AUBADE to your vocabulary and use it sometime to see whom others in your travels might know the word or may find themselves stumped as to what you may have just said when using the word AUBADE!

Oh, and do not forget to continue working our previous ‘Challenge of Words, which was BOUGIE, into your talks or writing.
