Word of the Day: Obsequious


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.
