A Brunette’s Reflection Word of the week challenge– drum roll please…. Verisimilitude. Can you wiggle this word into your work week? Hope you have fun with it! The last word was exculpate.

A word to take to the Cube Farm!
Earlier this month I started a new thing on A Brunette’s Reflection, a word of the week. Not just any word but a word you can wiggle into your work week. I will be doing this once a week and asking followers to apply it in a conversation or meeting at work. Hope you have fun with it! Last week’s word was EXCULPATE. So for the week of 5/19/14 I came up with a HARD WORD– at least I hope it is one you haven’t heard! 🙂
Example: A word that is misused incorrectly that may sound similar to the word that was meant to be used. (President Bush is great at this and so is my husband!) The word has quite an interesting history and you can read more about it here on Wikipedia.
Have a great Work Week!
I’m going to start something weekly on A Brunette’s Reflection, a word of the week. Not just any word but a word you can wiggle into your work week. I will be doing this once a week and asking followers to apply it in a conversation or meeting at work.
Why? A few reasons, I love language, I like incorporating new words into my vocabulary, and furthermore I like to be difficult 🙂
