The word for this week (January 16) is:
"Coptic (noun): an Afro-Asiatic language descended from ancient Egyptian and used as the liturgical language of the Coptic church.
Coptic (adjective): of or relating to the Copts, their liturgical language, or their church."(I used both definitions as I'm not sure how I might use it in a normal sentence this week...)
Since I forgot to choose words the last couple weeks, I will also attempt to learn two other words this week. Coincidentally, they all start with "c"....
For January 2:
"Conflagration (noun) 1: fire; especially, a large disastrous fire. 2: conflict, war."For January 9:
"Curmudgeon (noun) 1: archaic: miser. 2: a crusty, ill-tempered, and usually old man."So, there you have it. The three C-words I randomly chose for my word-of-the-week exercise. I will check in next week with how well I'm doing at using my new words.
