Grace’s Words of the Day

9 Mar

Today, Grace presented the class with three new words. Well done, Grace!



– noun. A Swedish word adopted by English, meaning a wide variety, assortment or collection of things. It isn’t the sort of word you would use in the exam, but definitely one to know!

E.g. On Animal Farm, there is a smorgasbord of different animals.




-adjective. Dashing, jaunty, slightly disreputable.

E.g. The cottage maiden in ‘Cousin Kate’ is jilted by her rakish lover.




– verb. To outsmart, avoid, evade, entrap an enemy, deceive.

E.g. Snowball circumvents capture by Napolean and his dogs.
