Word of the Week Wednesday: fantast


This “Wednesday’s” Word of the Week is: fantast.

A fantast is a dreamer or visionary.

It comes from the Greek word phantastḗs meaning a boaster.  The modern usage comes from association with the word fantastic.

You may say I’m a fantast, but I’m not the only one.
