6/27 Addendum: It’s true. Many of my answers are not one syllable words. I titled the post with the less common usage of ‘monosyllabic’ in mind.

monosyllabic
Function: adjective
1 : having only one syllable : composed of monosyllables
2 a : using or speaking only monosyllables b : conspicuously brief in answering or commenting : pointedly terse [merry where he was grave, talkative where he was monosyllabic — Dorothy Sayers]
source: Merriam-Webster Unabridged

    I really enjoyed this. It was harder than I thought to come up with single words. That despite the fact I could witness yours. This is a really interesting post.

    This was good, it made you think of deeper things because you had to come up with just one word that would convey what you thought or felt.
