Vocab Builder: A Riot of Words

This week’s words, from a variety of sources, just tickled my fancy.

  • Anacoluthia: absence of grammar coherence
  • Kith: friends
  • Schlep: to lug something; to move in a clumsy manner
  • Lupine: predatory; wolf-like
  • Distrain: to seize property in an effort to get the owner to pay a debt

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