Default Word of the Day

Please list the word, pronuciation, and definition, then use it in a sentence.

Fungible (FUN-juh-bul)

1 : being of such a nature that one part or quantity may be replaced by another equal part or quantity in the satisfaction of an obligation
2 : interchangeable
3 : flexible

TRBL was distraught to find out that the hair care products she purchased were not as fungible as expected.

umbrage (uhmbrij)

If I were TRBL I would have taken umbrage with the response Rou gave to her word.

according to Dictionary.com, today's word of the day is:

gobbet \ GOB-it \ , noun;

now, if it were up to me, that word would have something to do with turkeys!



but this is the actual definition:

1. a lump or mass.

2. a fragment or piece, especially of raw flesh.




that second one grosses me out!

Cacophony (kuh-kof-uh-nee) NOUN

The sounds of barking dogs and sirens added to the cacophony on the streets.

Rou,

You must use your word in a sentence!!

-----
Alacrity (eh-la-kre- tee)
Promptness in response : cheerful readiness

Alacrity is a stellar, although rare, quality for many in the business world today.

Crepuscular

occurring or active during twilight

The words "gloaming" and "crepuscular" are often used interchangeably; regardless, I enjoy either, as I'm very fond of bats.

Ha! I was going to offer gloaming. One of my favorites.

So instead,

limn

just pronounced lim

to outline in clear sharp detail

The hem of her dress was limned with a gold satin thread.

Turgid (adjective)

(Of speech, writing, style, etc.) Too serious about it's subject matter; boring.

As she looked over the faces in the crowd, she found them turgid and cold.
