LESSON Vocabulary Word of the Day

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Astaroth, Jun 14, 2013.

  1. This thread is intended to help you expand your vocabulary and learn new words to enrich your writing! A writer with a limited vocabulary will become repetitive and cannot be as precise in their narrative, so taking the time to discover unfamiliar words (or brush up on forgotten ones) is imperative.

    A word and its definition will be posted every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday when I can get around to it. Let's vocab!
