Sometimes the definitions of words just seem to elude me. I learn and re-learn them, but sometimes I need to get a few questions wrong in order for the words to stick. I took this sample question test from ETS on antonyms and got a modest score, merely because the words (all of which seem familiar to me) are those pesky little things that I can’t get down.
Well, no more! Here’s a list of words that I hereby plan to remember:
- inveterate: adj. firmly established, confirmed by habit
- propitiate: v. to appease
- undergird: v. to form the basis or foundation of.
- deposition: n. an act of removing from position of authority, testifying from court (authorial note: DUH. How many times have we, as AP Euro students, read about the deposition of various rulers?)
Hopefully that helped you as much as it helped me. Happy studying!
