Word of the Day (anthropomorphise)-30JAN21

Today’s “Word of the Day” is anthropomorphise and it is a verb meaning “attribute/ascribe human characteristics, traits, qualities, emotions, feelings, behaviours or intentions to non-human entities (god, animal, plant, object, etc.)”.

Example Sentence: Crucially, a pandemic lacks the essential ingredients of a story: clear heroes and villains with intent and motive. The Covid enemy is, despite our best efforts to anthropomorphise it, an invisible and faceless virus. That matters because commemoration is necessarily a moral exercise. Think of the way we marked Holocaust Memorial Day this week, lighting candles and telling the stories of those who survived or resisted the Nazi menace.
