(pronounced nahn-peh-REHL)

Used as an adjective, this word means having no equal — i.e., unparalleled, peerless or incomparable. As a noun, nonpareil is defined as paragon or a person of unrivaled quality and model of excellence.

Example: There was no question that Rowan would receive the Outstanding Interior Design Senior Award because, in both its contents and execution, her nonpareil portfolio stood out from the crowd.
