IMG_4150.JPG

I feel like I haven’t posted a “word of the day” in years! Today’s word is one I like.

Obsequious uh b-see-kwee-uh s:

1. characterized by or showing servile complaisance or deference; fawning.

2. servilely compliant or deferential.

3. obedient; dutiful.

Example:

1. He gave an obsequious nod to his supperior.

2. She had always been an obsequious wife, until she wasn’t anymore.

Word of the Day: Idiosyncrasy


 

As promised, I am continuing to post in my Word of the Day section. Today’s word is Idiosyncrasy.

Idiosyncrasy [id-ee-uhsing-kruh-see, –sin-] (noun):

1. a characteristic, habit, mannerism that is peculiar to an individual or group.

2. the physical characteristics peculiar to an individual or group.

3. peculiarity in the physical or mental constitution of an individual or group, especially susceptibility towards drugs, food, etc…¬†

Example:

She could hunt flies in an open field, but couldn’t grab a cat if it sat on her own lap– that was part of her idiosyncrasy.
