Evince

Evince means to reveal the presence of a quality or feeling, or to make clear and plain. I believe this photo of our front garden evinces my love of flowers.

Evincing is also a word, evinced by its presence in my dictionary.

  3. The photo evinces the fact that you have green fingers. I'm convinced that is evinced.

  7. Great word but I think I would be too afraid to use it. Maybe more examples necessary :) Hope you are having a great week.

    1. Not sure I'll use it either, Nicola - but sometimes I surprise myself.

  9. That's a word that isn't used enough! I know you've posted about loads more contests since then, but I've got a story idea together for the Commonwealth Prize you posted about last month. Now I merely need to write it before the deadline.

  12. There's a nice ring to the word "evince" but can't say I've heard it used much recently. Maybe you will be leading a revival, Patsy.

    1. Maybe - there are other words even more worthy of a revival though, I think.

  13. 'Con'-vince is also a word. I am convinced that you are a lot more green-fingered than me, Patsy!
