Quite a while back I said that I would start posting weekly vocabulary words. Well, that hasn’t gone very well.* Then a couple weeks ago I posted about how writing poetry forces a person to expand their vocabulary. This reignited my interest in sharing words, and so here are some!
ALLAY – to put (fears, etc.) to rest; to lessen or alleviate pain, grief, etc.
BELLICOSE – of quarrelsome or hostile nature; eager to fight or quarrel.
CIRCUMLOCUTION – a roundabout, indirect, or lengthy way of expressing something.
DELETERIOUS – harmful to health or well-being
Take care, fellow travelers.
