One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 15

In the realm of language proficiency assessments, mastering one word substitution (OWS) is pivotal, especially when preparing for exams such as the SSC, including the prestigious SSC CGL. From the foundational stages, like Class 3, students begin encountering these exercises, where a single word stands in for more complex concepts. As learners progress, they compile a growing list of one word substitutions to enhance their command over English. Examples of these one word substitutes abound, with terms like ‘cynosure’ highlighting the focal point and ‘ephemeral’ encapsulating fleeting moments. These exercises are not only integral for exams but also for broader linguistic proficiency in everyday English one word substitution scenarios. Embracing these substitutes provides an easy yet effective way to navigate the intricacies of language, ensuring a solid foundation for success in language assessments.

1401 WINCE to show pain, embarrassment and similar feelings with your facial expressions And in this way, the years passed: a lonely workshop; solid, beautiful things; customers who praised his work but winced at the sight of his face. Cas winced as she shifted her injured arm and was glad for the pain, because it was better to focus on that than on the ache growing in her heart.
1402 WINNOW to separate the husks from the grain The sieving winnowed out tiny pebbles and other impurities. We worked through the days and in the twilight getting in the rice, and then we worked three more days draining the fields and clearing them, and then three more nights sifting and winnowing.
1403 ABDICATION an act of giving up or renouncing the throne. After all, Goddard promised his disciples anything a human heart could desire, in exchange for the complete abdication of one’s conscience. And by destruction I mean precisely the abdication by Americans of any effort really to be free.
1404 ALMANAC an annual calendar with the position of stars You will recall that she had expected she might be scolded for entering Lord Fredrick’s study and perhaps falsely accused of taking the almanac. “From the mountains,” she said, after an article in one of the dusty almanacs.
1405 ALLEGORY a story that expresses ideas through symbols From what I know of Samuel, he will be a big flop as a ranger, but the allegory, I know, will be challenging and controversial, full of unpleasant truths. The painting is a personal statement, an allegory, and it is also a glimpse into the future.
1406 BIOPSY examination of a living tissue But storing tissues from diagnostic procedures like, say, mole biopsies, and using them in future research doesn’t require such consent. According to Howard Jones, Henrietta got the same care any white patient would have; the biopsy, the radium treatment, and radiation were all standard for the day.
1407 CHRONOLOGY an event presented in order of occurrence We generated background studies, psychological assessments, daily chronologies, myriad facts and extrapolations. My whole life had been a chronology of” changes.
1408 CRUSADE a religious war These domestic crusades terrorized poor people and, at the same time, got them involved in what was painted as a holy adventure: turning all Europe into a Christian land. Instead of a powder puff, there was a chamois leather bag with powdered chalk in it, scented with attar of roses from the crusades.
1409 DRAWN a game that results neither in victory nor in defeat The sun was well into the sky, but the curtains were still drawn. Fisher Ames of Massachusetts wondered out loud why the House had allowed itself to be drawn intoa debate over “abstract propositions” and now urged that the committee report be tabled.
1410 EATABLE anything to be eaten White men and women drank, chain-smoked, munched pretzels and other eatables, gossiped eagerly and played darts. He cut up a great ox and wrapped the good eatable parts in the hide, disguising them further by piling entrails on top.
1411 EDIBLE that which is fit or suitable to be eaten The book advises only that the roots of the wild potato are edible. He hunted around with his fork and knife for the edible parts and finally located one entire bite of meat.
1412 ENCYCLOPAEDIA a book that contains information on various subjects The 5 x 109 bits of information in our encyclopaedia of life”in the nucleus of each of our cells”if written out in, say, English, would fill a thousand volumes. When I was tired of jumping, I got out some volumes of my encyclopaedia and curled up on my bed against the wall and looked at some interesting entries.
1413 INTERREGNUM a period of interval between two regimes and governments In these interregnums of order, Tlacaelel explained, the topmost brother linked himself to the sun, on which all living creatures depend. While blacks did win the right to vote when the Republican Party came to power three years later, and even served in various offices, the interregnum lasted less than a decade.
1414 INTELLIGIBLE that which can be understood To Pippin’s surprise he found that much of the talk was intelligible; many of the Orcs were using ordinary language. The voices became louder but no more intelligible as the group of men reached the bank.
1415 MAMMAL an animal that gives milk She felt restless like the birds and mammals, and in the middle of the night she awakened and peered out at the sky. Native Americans continued to depend mainly on wild foods, especially wild mammals and waterbirds, fish, shellfish, and nuts.
1416 PARABLE  a short story with a moral You have heard it, and it”this true story of rich implication, this living parable of proven glory and humble nobility”and it, as I say, has made you free. “What does that mean, Lili? Don’t talk to me in parables. Talk to me honestly.”
1417 PAROLE pledge given by a prisoner for temporary release not to escape With respect to parole, in 1980, only 1 percent of all prison admissions were parole violators. Today, people labeled felons live in constant fear of a different form of racial repression”racial profiling, police brutality, and revocation of parole.
1418 PANTHEISM the belief that god pervades nature The whole work is steeped in a kind of everyperson pantheism, with elements of Judeo-Christian and Eastern religions. With light from a low sun filtering through a hilltop grove of leafy trees with black, serpentine branches and trunks, the painting captures what seems a moment of ecstatic pantheism.
1419 PLAGIARISM literary theft or passing off an author’s original work as one’s own She denounced it as a “hodgepodge of plagiarism pulled from here, a bit from there, the whole misinterpreted and sensationalized to give color to the red-flag word SPIES.” This is quite possible”Bruno does similar things in his published texts and, as we have seen, the concept of plagiarism was a novel one.
1420 PLATONIC something spiritual His “Cosmic Mystery” was disproved entirely by the much later discoveries of the planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto”there are no additional platonic solids’ that would determine their distances from the sun. And I probably would forget all my resolve to keep things strictly platonic until I could figure out where this whole N thing was going.
1421 PORTABLE that which can be carried in hand They were demanding a giant portable fish tank for the journey west. He’s still sick, portable oxygen slung over his shoulder, his face gaunt and tired.
1422 PLEBISCITE a decision made by public voting “I didn’t believe in the plebiscite,” he begins. What are your own memories of the plebiscite?
1423 REGALIA a dress with medals, ribbons worn at official ceremonies The gods arrived a few minutes later in their full war regalia, thundering into the throne room and expecting a battle. A large fleshy woman stood before me in full regalia.
1424 SOUVENIR a thing kept in memory of an event Someone would have taken it as a souvenir by now. We walked in through the office, hustled through the library, paused briefly to examine the holes in the bedroom wall, and entered the souvenir shop.
1425 ZODIAC a diagram showing the paths of planets The sphere was constructed from five concentric rings, each inscribed with zodiac symbols”the bull, the scorpion, et cetera”and seemingly random numbers and letters. He stared at the face of the sphere”seven rings, each one covered with tiny Greek letters, numbers, and zodiac signs.
1426 AUTONOMY the right to self-government “Science is not the highest value in society,” Andrews says, pointing instead to things like autonomy and personal freedom. At Hearthside, we utilize whatever bits of autonomy we have to ply our customers with the illicit calories that signal our love.
1427 KAKISTOCRACY government by the worst citizens The positions of trust were given only to the common criminals, especially the gangsters and the murderers, who formed a sort of aristocracy. The new aristocracy was made up for the most part of bureaucrats, scientists, technicians, trade-union organizers, publicity experts, sociologists, teachers, journalists, and professional politicians.
1428 NEOCRACY government by the inexperienced persons We of the ANC have always stood for a nonracial democracy, and we shrank from any action which might drive the races further apart than they already were. From what root is “democracy” derived?”What adjective is formed from “democracy”?”Is Russia at present a democracy?”Can you mention any ancient governments that for a time were democracies?
1429 OCHLOCRACY government by the mob But few want to allow voters to write them: that would be not so much democracy, they say, as ochlocracy”mob rule. We will not carry on any further our picture of the ochlocracy, in which all social union was entirely dissolved, and the state was surrendered to the arbitrary will of a turbulent populace.
1430 PANARCHY government run universally We’re lucky that English, with its stretchy grammar and its giant grab bag of a vocabulary, gives us so much room for verbal play, if not anarchy. Claiming that the ghettos were in danger of disintegrating into anarchy instigated by the ANC, the Afrikaans papers urged the government to use maximum force to restore law and order.
1431 THAERCHY government by the gods For a month I lived under a Good Brow/Bad Brow diarchy of terror. The positions are known as a “diarchy” which means they are equal and govern together.
1432 TRIENNIAL happening in three years It was an invitation to the Solvay Conference, an elite triennial international convocation in Brussels, Belgium. The challenge of the triennial, compared with surveys like the Whitney Biennial and the Venice Biennale, where most of the participants are already known, is to find “artists we ultimately can believe in,” he said.
1433 QUADRENNIAL happening in four years The TOP program operates on a four-year term, also known as the Olympic quadrennium. The world championships held immediately after the Olympics are typically a lower-profile competition because they are the first in each new quadrennium and don’t include a team competition.
1434 QUINQUENNIAL happening in five years Others are social only in the sense of being more or less congenial, meeting from time to time in committees, using social gatherings as ad hoc occasions for feeding and breed- ing. As the room fills, I brace myself for a less congenial reception.
1435 DECENNIAL happening in ten years The Apple of 2010, at the end of its decennium mirabilis, had a record of hardware innovation no other electronics firm could match. But with intellectual matters it is totally different; they change from century to century, nay, from decennium to decennium.
1436 SEMICENTINNIAL 50th anniversary This season, Wolf Trap in Vienna, Va., returns to the scene to celebrate the semicentennial of the Filene Center. To mark the 50th anniversary of saving Pike Place Market, the Market’s traditional fall festival will transform into a semicentennial celebration of the landmark 1971 initiative.
1437 CENTENNIAL 100th anniversary Several weeks after the centennial gathering in Philadelphia, Susan B. Anthony visited Elizabeth Cady Stanton at her new home in Tenafly, New Jersey. After seeing women omitted from history in the centennial celebrations, the suffragists decided to write their own account of the women’s suffrage movement.
1438 SESQUICENTENNIAL 150th anniversary On the eve of its 150th year ” 2017 is the sesquicentennial ” Howard University is fighting, too. There’s a lot of doom in “Punctured Landscape,” which marks Canada’s sesquicentennial with 17 depictions of the nation’s iniquities and disasters.
1439 BICENTENNIAL 200th anniversary We found lots of coins”mostly new money but also some buffalo nickels and a silver dollar from the bicentennial. He picked out a bicentennial quarter and handed it to Rufus.
1440 TRICENTENNIAL 300th anniversary New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau President and CEO Stephen Perry says it will be great timing for promotion of New Orleans’ tricentennial in 2018. The museum was founded in Gracie Mansion, now the mayor’s official residence, nearly a century ago, in 1923, by Henry Collins Brown, a Scottish-born advertising salesman and journalist, as the city approached its tricentennial.
1441 TETRACENTENNIAL 400th anniversary David Brown said in an interview that the tercentennial has led to the publication of a raft of new material on Brown that is forming a database that will shape further understanding of his life.  
1442 PENTACENTENNIAL 500th anniversary They smile at me, condescending and kind, and head toward their room, to do their toenails and talk about older things. The Odessa High fans got tired of the condescending smirks of the Permian fans.
1443 SEXAGENARIAN one who is in the sixties All these moribund sexagenarians had the appearance of childish girls. Marsalis was quick to say he didn’t name this weekend’s concerts ” “Wynton at 60″ ” which celebrate his new status as a sexagenarian with a program of his originals from four decades.
1444 OCTAGENARIAN one who is in the eighties A tall, gentle man with steel-rimmed glasses and a perpetual smile, Hartleb greeted everyone he met”champion or patzer, beginner or veteran, child or octogenarian”by bowing low and saying with deep reverence, “Master!” He sipped his coffee as delicately as a debutante, as slowly as an octogenarian.
1445 NONAGENARIAN one who is in the nineties And yet, it was probably an assignment for the paper ” a profile of the nonagenarian Irish designer and architect Eileen Gray ” that sent him off to the tip of South America. It would be surprising if there weren’t a tinge of regret in such an enterprise from the pen of a nonagenarian.
1446 CENTENARIAN one who is hundred years old On this issue I have been casually slandering him for years for reasons involving political bias and having the memory of a doddering centenarian. Most interestingly, a centenarian woman who asks to be identified only as Selma shares memories of surviving the Armenian genocide.
1447 CENTURY a period of hundred years New York’s prison system in the early twentieth century, to his concerned eyes, was in need of complete overhaul. Within a few centuries, the Indians of the eastern forest reconfigured much of their landscape from a patchwork game park to a mix of farmland and orchards.
1448 MILLENNIUM a period of 1000 years If I didn’t know better”if the gold-flecked eyes didn’t brim with many millennia’s worth of knowledge”I’d swear he was just one of the chess-playing old heads at my apartment complex in Chicago. The incredible thing is that, for the first few hundred years of the first millennium ad, before a universal notation system emerged, all of the chant that monks and nuns sang was memorised.
1449 HERETIC one who is against the religion “A bundle of sticks used for kindling, for burning heretics alive centuries ago.” The local Catholic archduke, steadfast in dogmatic certainty, vowed he would rather “make a desert of the country than rule over heretics.”
1450 SOTTOPER one who is a habitual drunked But on this day the stoop had no stoopers. Sitting on my stoop in Washington, a neighborhood gathering spot on any given afternoon, my fellow “stoopers” speak more seriously than they used to.
1451 POLYGOT one who knows many languages I could hear a lot of words often repeated, queer words, for there were many nationalities in the crowd; so I quietly got my polyglot dictionary from my bag and looked them out. The captain swore polyglot”very polyglot”polyglot with bloom and blood; but he could do nothing.
1452 DROVER one who deals in cattle “Yes, they are. Besides, you don’t honestly think all those drovers are going to last long out there, do you? I’ll grab one of their guns when they fall.” “They know we have to come back sometime. The people in Mohegan heard that a drover from Norfield had been shot on the Ridgebury Road two days ago and his cattle driven off.”
1453 LAPIDIST(LAPIDARY) one who cuts precious stones Using mathematically calculated techniques that go back to Italian Renaissance architects Filippo Brunelleschi and Leon Battista Alberti, he maps out abstract patterns that create vertiginous spatial illusions. The library, for instance, has likenesses of Marcus Aurelius, Alexander the Great and Sappho, while such Renaissance men as Galileo and Leon Battista Alberti keep company on the terrace.
1454 OCULIST one who cure eye disease Evidently some wild wag of an oculist set them there to fatten his practice in the borough of Queens, and then sank down himself into eternal blindness or forgot them and moved away. He had the advice of an eminent oculist; and he eventually recovered the sight of that one eye.
1455 CONFECTIONER one who sells sweets and pastries In this confectioner’s we used to eat ices, and there we learned to smoke cigarettes. I knew there were confectioners there, too, who sold candies I’d always wanted to taste.
1456 STEVEDORE one who loads and unloads ships Though not as tall or physically commanding as Bull’s, Captain Brannon’s body was stacked together with the knotted muscles of a stevedore, and an implied menace shadowed his whole appearance. Most were attached to labor battalions, as cooks and stevedores, laborers and gravediggers.
1457 JOCKEY a professional rider in horse races When jockey Kurtsinger launched War Admiral in his final drive for the wire, Pollard said, do something completely unexpected and probably unprecedented: Let him catch up. The door of the helicopter opened, and out stepped, first a fair and ruddy-faced young man, then, in green velveteen shorts, white shirt, and jockey cap, a young woman.
1458 FLOCK a number of sheeps After the performance the walleyed yokels would flock to Brother Mance, and I would fill out applications until my fingers ached. So also was the great flock of seagulls overhead.
1459 CONSTELLATION a number of stars grounded together Vega is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, and the third brightest star in the northern hemisphere. “So tell me, Mr. Lee”if we took our constellations and broke them up into bits, and then reassembled them using the pieces of the different constellations, we would get the Chinese constellations?”
1460 DOWAR the house of an arab “To help in raising and dowering her three daughters, as they are soon to be of marriaging age.” In 1796, Judge learned of Martha Washington’s plan to sign over her dower enslavement to the first lady’s granddaughter as a wedding present, ensuring her bondage back in Virginia.
1461 BREWERY a factory for manufacturing of beers The United States has 67 major beer breweries, producing 23 billion liters of beer per year. Last to go was the chicha brewery with its elite female staff.
1462 SHEATH a case in which the sword is kept The paralysis was accompanied by destruction of the nerve sheaths and by degeneration of the cells of the anterior horns of the spinal cord. I wore a black shantung sheath that cost me forty dollars.
1463 IMMUNE free from infection Our liturgy’, endless; my own body immune to the laws of time. “He wanted to meet the immortal hunter who calls himself Bouain. Now he has. If you will help him get free, he will make you immune to bullets.”
1464 CARACASS the dead body of a animal “Could be you’re smelling some sour crude from a rig. Or a fox carcass left by a bobcat. Even a deer that lazy hunters didn’t track down.” Holding a knife, I contemplate a rabbit carcass slung over a hook on the wall, waiting to be cut open and skinned for the stew.
1465 CHROMATICS the science of colours Figure 4.47: The chromatic scale includes all the pitches normally found in Western music. It was a placid explosion of orange and red, a great chromatic symphony, a colour canvas of su­pernatural proportions, truly a splendid Pacific sunset, quite wasted on me.
1466 ELOCUTION the art of effective speking The store window being like a little stage and her having taken elocution, she considered herself the only person in Cold Sassy qualified to act like a dummy. These apparent contradictions express themselves in everything that he does, down to his elocution.
1467 ORALOGY the study of mountains For many people this might sound like a normal poem, but to me it’s an analogy of my life. “We think of what we’re doing as a lot like basketball,” one of the Mother players said, and that’s an apt analogy.
1468 SYNOD a council of clergymen In a sermon on Sunday, the pope called for an end to in-fighting, saying the synod was “not meant to discuss beautiful and clever ideas, or to see who is more intelligent”. The final version will serve for further reflection among Catholics around the world over the next 12 months and as the cornerstone of a second and final synod on the family next year.
1469 ORDINATION the ceremony at which a man becomes a priest If Reb Saunders even once heard of Danny being anywhere in my presence, he would remove him immediately from the college and send him to an out-of-town yeshiva for his rabbinic ordination. “You will tell your father on the day of your ordination?”
1470 SACRILIEGE violiting religious things With that stroke the void moved from sacrilege to holiness. Oh, said Janine weakly, as if to protest this sacrilege. . . . and Moira took off her own clothes and put on those of Aunt Elizabeth, which did not fit her exactly but well enough.
1471 BETRODTED engaged to be married And her betrothed looked at her with the cool grey eyes of a Stark and promised to spare the boy who loved her. She wondered how her betrothed would take that.
1472 GYROSCOPE an instrument for recoding the revolutions of the earth Even after enor-mous upheavals and seemingly irrevocable changes, the same pattern has always reasserted itself, just as a gyroscope will always return to equilibrium, however far it is pushed one way or the other. The hours go by and you lose your gyroscope; your mind starts to roam.
1473 ELEGAY a poem of mourning Rowan looked out at the grand elegy of scythes. Word spread quickly on the street that a small elegy of scythes had entered the Tonist cloister.
1474 NICHE a hollow space in a wall for a stuate There was something at the back of the niche. But can you tell that to a fifteen-year-old boy trying to find his niche in the world?
1475 HACKNEYED languages that has been very much used “But that expression of “violently in love’ is so hackneyed, so doubtful, so indefinite, that it gives me very little idea. “Fifty years,” I hackneyed, “is a long time.”
1476 SANCTUM,SANCTORUM a very private room She approaches the double doors and pushes her way into the sanctum sanctorum. If deemed worthy, they were finally admitted to the sanctum sanctorum, an office large enough to accommodate 40 people.
1477 LUNATIC a place where mad men are kept I was beginning to believe he was a lunatic. “We lost the feed just after Katniss’s beautiful speech, and then Haymitch said he thought he heard a gun fire, and I said it was ridiculous, but who knows? There are lunatics everywhere!”
1478 LAXATIVE a medicine that loosens the bowels It was no wonder the main medicines of this era were laxatives. All those except Yossarian reporting on sick call with temperatures below 102 had their gums and toes painted with gendan violet solution and were given a laxative to throw away into the bushes.
1479 PLATITUDES common place remarks I’ve heard this speech, or one like it, often enough before: the same platitudes, the same slogans, the same phrases: the torch of the future, the cradle of the race, the task before us. Werner writes four lines, a smattering of platitudes”I am fine; I am so busy”and hands it to the bunk master.
1480 NEUROTIC a person suffering from nervous breakdown Married women were not allowed to teach in those days, hence most of the teachers were women made neurotic by starved love instincts. “Please excuse me while I escort this extremely disturbed and neurotic child to the other side of the car,” said Tootie.
1481 MANOMETER an instrunment for measuring gases Numbers from manometers, measuring the pressures distributed along a wing. Is this independent of the moving fluid and the fluid in the manometer?
1482 GULLIBLE simple and easily deceived Or is this a shallow, gullible man who doesn’t think about very much of anything? My father once said I was as gullible as a fish.
1483 MEGALOMANIAC one who has delusions of one’s grandeur Talent contests and megalomaniac record producers have always paired ingenue wannabes with experienced songwriters, for instance, cashing in quickly on success before the public’s appetite for novelty fades. “The Fifth Estate,” in which he perfectly captures the slippery nature of Julian Assange ” free-speech hero, treacherous colleague, possible megalomaniac ” had just come out.
1484 WELTSCHMERZ weariness of and sadness for life and world Many of Untitled Goose Game’s relatively young players are, it seems fair to assume, suffering from a sense of Weltschmerz. Eternal disappointment, or Weltschmerz, if you want to impress friends at a German cocktail party, is probably one of Wilde’s lesser-known aphorisms.
1485 ENNUI boredom and frustration in life Oh, the Test matches that have saved us from ennui, the boxing bouts, even the billiard scores. I didn’t understand until he said it that part of my ennui had been resentment.
1486 DIFFIDENT shy,timid , unwilling to face a situation During the proceedings, the magistrate was diffident and uneasy, and would not look at me directly. He could hear her panting now, her voice almost a wail of diffident yet iron determination: “I dont know what to do. I dont know what to do.”
1487 SATURNINE one who is grave and gloomy The man who glowered before him conformed to the classic stereotype of Marine barber Ben had envisioned in his mind: the face was saturnine, pock-marked, and the mouth was grim. Sour and saturnine, with a maimed hand, Hungerford had been company paymaster for a time, until the Tattered Prince had caught him stealing from the coffers and removed three of his fingers.
1488 VICARIOUSLY the act of enjoying or having an experience indirectly “I get that,” I say, thinking of Jason and Hope and all that I’ve missed out on these past few months, living vicariously through their texts and social media feeds. The crowd, full of good feeling, replete with food and drunk with the music, vicariously excited, pressed round, eagerly thrusting over their heads garland after garland of flowers; the earth was spattered with petals.
1489 PROCRASTINATION the tendency to postpone things for future “I don’t see nothing but procrastination. Go ‘head and give it a try.” General Peckem’s communications about cleanliness and procrastination made Major Major feel like a filthy procrastinator, and he always got those out of the way as quickly as he could.
1490 RUSTICATE to relax in a countryside far away from the humdrum of town I guess this was the rusticated equivalent of coming out. Well, the cabbies’ shelters are like this; from the outside they have the air of little cricket pavilions that have been – somewhat oxymoronically – urbanely rusticated.
1491 VEGETATE to spend life without purpose and intitative But after a while he became convinced that if he was ever going to do anything in Milagro besides vegetate and play the fool, he needed mobility. “He didn’t influence me. You know what I might do? I might stay right here in this hospital bed and vegetate. I could vegetate very comfortably right here and let other people make the decisions.”
1492 COQUETTLE a girl who flirts egregiously Don’t let the cockatiel throw you off; this is no yuppie ambience. I find the place with no trouble, delighted that the city and my map are in such perfect agreement, and spend an hour with one of my hosts absorbing cockatiel technology.
1493 CIRCE a women who lures men to destroy them He believes Circe really did turn Odysseus’s crew into pigs. Glaucus was in despair, for he was madly in love; and he determined to go to Circe, the enchantress, and beg her for a love-potion to melt Scylla’s hard heart.
1494 AMAZON a tall strong,masculine kind of women When slave girls and daughters-in-law ran away, people would say they joined these witch amazons. The office building on their left had a single word etched on the glass doors: amazon.
1495 VIRAGO a loud-mouthed turbulent kind of women To Sabina’s passionate virago ” when he breaks off the affair, she stabs him in the face ” he seems the callow swain, Jung at heart. She worked up to quavers, breaks, near-sobs and near-screams; her eyes grew wide and wild, and her face took on the expression of a virago.
1496 JUDAS a traitor who can sel our even his firends There were stealthy steps within, with a movement of yellow light, and then a voice that Mr. Wogan knew very well came through a judas. A quivering voice came at the last from behind the iron judas in the door.
1497 EMPATHY understanding without the interference of feelings This is what is meant, in the technical sense, by empathy. His natural empathy and experience with the horses of the bullring circuit had given him insight into the minds of ailing, nervous horses.
1498 AFAUXPAS an embarrassing mistake I felt extremely shy, wary of committing a faux pas, and unequipped to participate in the high-flown and rapid-fire conversations. “It’s confusing. You should stay together as a set to avoid such faux pas.”
1499 POTPOURRI a medley or heterogenous mixture of great variety I want to smuggle in a blanket and some potpourri, too. I grab for anything, my potpourri bowl”I throw it at him, it bounces to the floor.
1500 ARGOT a slang of the underworld “The Redeemed” concludes Pears’s West Country Trilogy narrated by Keeble, a master of the argot and manner of speech of the region and whose reserved manner in general narrative opens doors to the past. Beyond that, he unobtrusively conveys the personality of the various characters, including the manipulative Lizzie, irresolute Frank, ponderous Fawn, patient Lucy and, most gloriously, a fractious Scot, speaker of high-Caledonian argot.
