evoking tears of emotion; causing tears of emotion
I'm an unapologetically romantic and sentimental person: my favorite films are good old fashioned lachrymose Bollywood family tragedies.
lacrima (tear) (Latin)
blithe, buoyant, ebullient, jocular
lachrymose-lac+chry (cry)+mose (most), so when you cry most you produce 'tears'. Tear glands in our eyes are also known as lachrymal glands. So they are the ones that make you cry, sorrow, sober lachRYMOSE the highlighted word rhymes with 'remorse'. so when yu are in a remorse, it means yu are in a TEARFUL state
