TIPSY TODAY with Rogena
Let's Build Our Vocabulary and Learn a Few New Words!!
It's always good to build your vocabulary. Look at some of these and see if you might be able to use them in your current WIP.
CONTEMPTIBLE & CONTEMPTUOUS (adjectives)
Contemptible: Worthy of scorn or disdain, despicable.
Contemptuous: Showing or expressing contempt or disdain.
Note: One would be contemptuous of a contemptible act.
Strongly disinclined, a strong feeling of opposition, as in She was averse
to taking the risk. (Note: Often used with the negative not, as in I am
not averse to having yet another glass of fine pinot noir.)
And a fun word used a lot in British/UK English:
To deceive, trick, cheat, swindle.
WEEKEND POETRY: Lisa Fisher and Bex Pavia
NEXT WEEK: Compound Adjectives, Apostrophes In Time, and much more.
