So I’ve been doing a lot of my uni reading (novels are great, essays are… less great) and I’ve been coming across SO MANY new words. Or at least, words that I knew vaguely but never knew the actual definition of before!!
Because there are so many of them, and I think they’re pretty awesome, I decided to make a blog post!! (Also I can throw the piece of paper I’ve been scribbling them on…XD)
characterized by extreme patriotism, especially in the form of aggressive or warlike foreign policy.“jingoistic propaganda”
the title and rank of peer or peeress.“on his retirement as cabinet secretary, he was given a peerage”
peers as a class.noun: the peerage“he was elevated to the peerage two years ago”
government by the wealthy.“the attack on the Bank of England was a gesture against the very symbol of plutocracy”
the state of being the firstborn child.
the right of succession belonging to the firstborn child, especially the feudal rule by which the whole real estate of an intestate passed to the eldest son.
the heavens or sky.“thunder shakes the firmament”
describe or portray (something) precisely.“the law should delineate and prohibit behaviour that is socially abhorrent”
make (a problem, bad situation, or negative feeling) worse.
And my personal favourite that isn’t actually a word, but a phrase:
With detritus defined as “waste or debris of any kind” !?!
So, I hope you guys enjoyed this quick post!! I’d love to hear if anyone else has learnt new words recently, so give us a shout on Twitter or down in the comments!!
Lots of love,
