I‘ve been doing some work recently for Vocabulary.com, a great site for teaching and learning new words. The site offers vocabulary lists, resources, lesson plans, and more. The site is run those at by Thinkmap, the same people who operate Visual Thesaurus (another of my favorite word sites). This week’s word list comes from Vocabulary.com. Get to know these words, try out the site, and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
- Ethereal: exceptionally light or delicate
- Bauble: a cheap, showy novelty or trinket
- Pellucid: exceptionally clear, such as water, or easy to undestand
- Repugnant: offensive, obscene
- Fatuous: lacking intelligence, foolish
