Unit 05- The Ecstatic Pepper Mill

I decided to approach like I have been doing so far in commission projects, understand the given words, and exhaustively research them, so I am able to better understand them.

This project follows through my method and as the given words were Ecstatic and Pepper Mill, I started to dig into the definitions of both.

According to Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, which I have:


" (adj) Feeling extremely happy and excited. e.g. an ecstatic welcome from thousands who lined the streets"

and according to The free dictionary online

"1. in a trance-like state of great rapture or delight
2. showing or feeling great enthusiasm ecstatic applause
a person who has periods of intense trance-like joy"

Also, I went on to find some synonyms

Joyous, Euphoric, Enthusiastic, Delirious and Blissful.

Pepper Mill

" A hand mill for grinding peppercorns"


a small device, the top part of which you turn by hand to crush the peppercorns inside it to produce pepper"

Definately, arabian royalty has something similar to a pepper mill, also the Taj Mahal itself look like one, I will be researching it more deeply.
