Pulchritude is gotten from the old Latin word “pulcher” meaning beauty in modern English; although not commonly used again. Pulchritude was also the last word in the popular 2006 American movie Akeelah and the Bee in which Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer) spelt the word to win the spelling Bee championship.
Some students of Griffith College attempted to spell the word. Do not laugh alone. Share with your friends.
