Vocab Builder: Become a Better Thinker

Vocabulary study introduces you to new ideas, making you not just a better writer but also a better thinker. Check out this week’s word list:

Laconic: terse
Smithereens: splintered pieces
Apocopate: to cut off a word’s last letter or syllable when spoken
Retrograde: inverted order; moving backwards
Bricolage: something made from materials at hand

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