Good day, cool cats! (I admit that when I first spelled “cats” I spelled it with a “k”.) We’re back for another edition of Fun with Words.
Whether you are a new reader or a fan of the series, I’m here with your fix of words.
Today’s words are:
- Doldrums: A period of stagnation.
- Ursine: Related to bears or the bear family (Ursidae).
- Prevarication: A lie or falsehood.
- Inchoate: Not completely formed.
Using these words in a single sentence, as I have challenged in a previous post, seems difficult. Nevertheless, I shall try!
The reporter prevaricated when she said a newly-discovered Ursine species was in doldrums; on the contrary, the species was inchoate.
Goodness, that was a tough one. I really needed the semi-colon to help glue together that sentence.
If you have been pondering a word that you would like to see featured on the series, feel free to email me and the word may be featured!
I will conclude with a bonus word that was in my notes but that I didn’t add to the above list when I was writing it: prestidigitation. This word refers to tricks for entertainment. In hindsight, this was apt. Fitting in the word “prestidigitation” into the aforementioned sentence that used the featured words in this post would be… difficult.
Have a good day!
