Today’s word of the day is treacle. It’s spelled T-R-E-A-C-L-E. Treacle is a noun that means sentimentality or flattery.

The Latin word Theriaca (TER ee ah ca) referred to an antidote or cure, and as time went on, the word’s meaning shifted to refer to a thick, sugary liquid. When used to describe a work of art, it’s pretty much never meant as a compliment. 

Falling in love was the worst thing that could happen to our band’s songwriter. Now everything he writes is pure treacle. 

Once again, the spelling of treacle is T-R-E-A-C-L-E.
