Tommy’s Words of the Day

6 Mar

Today Tommy followed in Daniel’s footsteps and taught three new words to the class.

 

Oust

– a verb. To get rid of, to drive out or to expell (someone or something)

E.g. Napolean and his guard-dogs ousted Snowball from the farm. Likewise, the animals had ousted Mr Jones during the rebellion.

 

galvanise

– a verb. To inspire, shock or excite someone into taking action.

E.g. Mr Jones’ carelessness and neglect galvanised the animals into rebelling. Old Major’s dream also galvanised the farm into rebellion. Napolean’s violence and threats galvanise the animals into working harder.

 

inebriated

– an adjective. Drunk, tipsy.

E.g. Mr Jones is too inebriated most of the time to do a good job on the farm.
