A man’s sweetheart
C18: from the name of Don Quixote’s mistress Dulcinea del Toboso in Cervantes’ novel; from Spanish dulce sweet
I saw this word today for the first time on Wordsmith.org.( A great source of unusual words and their meanings)
Some words are really attractive and I think that this is one of them. I’m not sure if it’s the sound, meaning or association that makes any particular word appealing.
Have you ever been a Dulcinea?
