Good evening and welcome to Tool Week on Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest are the titles of Tool songs, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, except holidays, unless there's a holiday special...

Today's word is:

Eulogy

|ˈyü-lə-jē|

noun

  • a commendatory oration or writing especially in honor of one deceased: she delivered the eulogy at his funeral
  • high praise

Also, track two on Tool's second album, Ænima

"You claimed all this time that you would die for me
Why then are you so surprised when you hear your own eulogy?"

ORIGIN: 15th cent.: Middle English euloge, from Medieval Latin eulogium, from Greek eulogia praise
