'Syzygy is a kind of unity, especially through coordination or alignment, most commonly used in the astronomical and/or astrological sense [1]. Syzygy is derived from the Late Latin syzygia, "conjunction," from the Greek σύζυγος (syzygos), "yoked together."'

Lovely!

Yes, like I said:
"astronomical bodies in synergy" :-)

Syzygy is an old favourite of crossword setters, mainly due to its lack of vowels.

Pelagic is one of my favourite words. Don't really know why; I just like the sound it makes, and the way it looks on the page!

I had to look pelagic up and found this soite. Islands flash on and off and such. Great fun!

An unambitious little word but utterly delightful!

Just had to post this somewhere - could have put it in poetry (because it IS) but the purists might have objected...
