Word of the Day: Obsequious

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: Diaphanous


 

Today’s word is brought to you by July’s hot and humid weather.

Diaphanous [dahy-afuh-nuhs] (adj.):

1. very sheer and light; almost completely transparent or translucent.

2. delicately hazy.

Example:

In spite of her light blouse and her diaphanous skirt, Emily’s sweat was dripping from every pore.

Word of the Day: Abrogate

This word gave me a few things to think about.

Abrogate [ab-ruh-geyt] (verb):

1. to abolish or annul by formal or official means.

2. to put aside, put an end to.

Example:

After the opposition’s meeting, a decision was made to abrogate the controversial article of the constitution.
