WORDY MONDAYS!

words-with-friendsHello!

How did your day go, hope it went well……….

So if you know me personally, you’d know I love words and being verbally articulate is a strength of mine. Hence, I thought why not share with my lovely readers. Every monday I’d be sharing 5 new words that you could add to your vocabulary. So here we go!

1. PRUDISH /Proo-dish/: Someone who is proper and modest. Often used on someone who cannot stand hearing any sexual reference. e.g. “Sola could be quite prudish, conversations like that irks her”

2. LAUDABLE: Something worthy of praise and commendation e.g. “That was a laudable action”

3. TRUDGE: To walk slowly and with heavy steps, typically because of exhaustion or harsh conditions. e.g. I trudged along the stairs

4. BRUSQUE: To be blunt, abrupt or offhand in speech or manner. “I apologise for being brusque earlier”

5. EBULLIENT: overflowing with joy, enthusiasm, or excitement; high-spirited e.g. “He has an ebullient personality”

Bonus Word: Balderdash: An Absolutely stupid or senseless action. ^.^

And that’s all! So tell me which words above you knew or had heard of before. Join the conversation on my instagram @lynnjaphet

I hope to bring this weekly henceforth.

Have a great night rest.

xoxo

  1. Great post! I’m a word-lover myself, and sometimes tweet random #wordsilove. Brusque is my fav her. And somehow I always thought ‘balderdash’ was ‘bladerdash’. You learn every day 😀
