Encomium

Encomium

<en-kome-me-um>

eulogy; accolade; compliment;

something written praising someone.

The critic showered an encomium on the author. It was a great tribute.

Memory trick:
encomium reminds of economy or money.
we make a good economy for someone we praise.

At work:
We composed an encomium for his retirement party. He will be missed.
