  • IPA: /ˈsʌmpt͡ʃuəs/
Adjective

sumptuous

  1. Magnificent, luxurious, splendid.
    • 1764, Oliver Goldsmith, The Traveller:
      Though poor the peasant’s hut, his feasts though small,
      He sees his little lot the lot of all;
      Sees no contiguous palace rear its head
      To shame the meanness of his humble shed;
      No costly lord the sumptuous banquet deal
      To make him loathe his vegetable meal;
