Today’s word is mawkish. Mawkish means sentimental but like way too
sentimental. Super sappy and sugary and like nauseatingly
so. Mawkish might describe, for example, one of
those romantic comedies where people go to the airport, and like chase someone through
the airport to catch them at the last minute, and they have this super romantic reunion. And somehow it’s in a world where there’s
no TSA and everyone has thousands of dollars to buy these last-minute plane tickets. And you’re like, no. This is too much. This is mawkish. It’s so sentimental like kinda grosses me
out. Subscribe for more Word of the Day videos
