CHOCOLATOPOEIA

by The Chocolate Dictionary

Chocolatopoeia is when a word sounds as if it is made of chocolate. For example, ‘rhapsody’ sounds as if it contains crunchy almond and hazelnut praline; ‘nectar’ sounds as if it is enrobed in a paper-thin couverture; and  word ‘panache’ has such a smooth ring to it, it could be a ganache. In chocolatopoeia it’s not just the words themselves that sound delicious, they also add a flourish to the lips when uttered.
