Weekly Vocab Builder

I slacked a little last week on my vocabulary words, but I hope their unusualness makes up for it. Here’s what you might have missed:

  • rakish: fashionable. Also, disreputable.
  • petrichor: the smell of rain on dry ground.

If you’re hungry for more words, check out some of my favorite resources:

And, of course, if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll get a Vocab Builder every weekday.
