#214 Eunoia

I stumbled across a word recently “eunioa

According to Wikipedia: In rhetoric, eunoia (Ancient Greek: εὔνοιᾰ, romanized: eúnoialit. ‘well mind; beautiful thinking’)[1] is the goodwill a speaker cultivates between themselves and their audience, a condition of receptivity.[2] 

It is also a rarely used medical term referring to a state of normal mental health.[5] 

As an added bonus Eunoia is the shortest English word containing all five vowels.

It is my new favourite 🙂
