Weekly Vocab Builder: Patriotic Terms

This week’s words come from a famous document in America’s history. If you are the first person to e-mail me the correct answer, I’ll send you a copy of the document! Here’s the list:

  • Unalienable: not to be separated or given away
  • Liberty: being free from restriction or control
  • Usurpation: a wrongful exercising of authority
  • Despotism: absolute power
  • Tyranny: a government ruled by one person with absolute power

You can get the Vocab Builder every weekday by following me onĀ Twitter.

Remember, the first person to e-mail me the correct name of the document all these words come from wins a copy of that document! The winner will be announced in this space.
