The melting of one thing into another.
So, this word just rolls off the tongue, don't you think? The definition evokes so many different images and emotions. It could be used for anything. Not only do I love ridiculously long words that have simple meanings, I'm also a huge fan of definitions that have multiple interpretations.
I first think of baking. With butter. Paula Deen, you're my hero! It's such a warm, comforting image, that suggests mouth-watering goodness.
Second, I think of glass-blowing. Yeah, I know, who thinks of that for anything? But really, the glass is melted and shaped into a beautiful piece of art. Sometimes precious metals are melted into the piece for an added dimension. Illiquation seems the perfect word for this process.
Finally, my mind bends toward something slightly more risque. I think of the interaction between a man and woman at the height of passion. The definition is the perfect description of being lost in love during the act of making it.
So many different interpretations, one simple word. All with the potential of becoming a terrific story.
