ennui

(pronounced ahn-WEE)

A strange little word that speaks volumes because saying it aloud almost sounds like one is sighing. Appropriately enough, ennui means tedium, boredom, or general feelings of discontent and apathy.

Example: Eve’s abnormally intense degree of ennui over the previous month had begun to alarm her co-workers so much that they decided to confront her about it over lunch.
