Wonderful Word Wednesday: Aggrandize




It's Wonderful Word Wednesday again! Do you as a writer ever struggle finding that perfect word to describe something or you want to shake your writing up with some new words? Each Wednesday I post hand-picked descriptive words for writers and other vocabulary nerds out there. ;) 

aggrandize
verb (used with object), aggrandized, aggrandizing.
1.) to widen in scope; increase in size or intensity; enlarge; extend.
2.) to make great or greater in power, wealth, rank, or honor.
3.) to make (something) appear greater.

Example Sentence: Nzelt the Vulture seeks to aggrandize his rule to Silfurlund despite his righteous exterior.

Silfurlund looks a lot like this place.
(I don't own this image.)
Have you seen or used this word before? What do you think of it?
