One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 23

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.

2201 COMMUNISM  a theory or system of social organization in which all property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs. Likening communism to a disease, Kennan contended that it would respond only to force, or what he called “containment.” Daring, larger-than-life Bill Harvey was now America’s top spy hunter”and he was determined to make his mark in the war against communism.
2202 IMPERIALISM  a policy of extending a country’s power and influence through colonization, use of military force, or other means. Indeed, because of their historical and rhetorical association with the successful war against British imperialism, they were the most potent forces in the entire political culture. Living on Seminole contributed to the cultural imperialism.
2203 SYLLOGISM   an instance of a form of reasoning in which a conclusion is drawn from two given or assumed propositions (premises); a common or middle term is present in the two premises but not in the conclusion, which may be invalid (e.g. all dogs are animals; all animals have four legs; therefore all dogs have four legs ). Ideally, it should be possible to formulate every scientific argument in syllogistic terms, a syllogism being, for example: All men are mortal. For Aristotle, logos was the province of something he called an “enthymeme,” which was the equivalent in rhetoric to the syllogism in logic.
2204 IMAGISM  an obviously true or hackneyed statement  This perhaps suggests an impressionistic technique rather than the hard clear focus of imagism. Her enthusiasm for imagism took her to England, where she established an association with Ezra Pound and his circle.
2205 TRUISM  a statement that is obviously true and says nothing new or interesting. Though, indeed, the vendor of a certain nostrum has vulgarised the truism to the very point of contempt. The boy preserved worldly truism and matter-of-fact observations about the weather with equal zeal.
2206 ICONIC relating to or of the nature of an icon  James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, and Rosalind Franklin solve the three-dimensional structure of DNA, producing the iconic image of the double helix. It stayed there for years, second shelf of the medicine cabinet”milky-white bottle with the iconic line drawing of a sailing ship, a totem of our exotic visitor.
2207 BRIGAND  member of a band of robbers “Yeah,” Lydia said, “but it’s not dangerous because of all the staff-wielding brigands. They have guns now. Gun beats staff in gun-staff-scissors.” Sometimes criminals”robbers, brigands, freebooters, highwaymen, hooligans, thugs, bandits, pirates, gangsters, outlaws”organize or join together in gangs or bands or mafias.
2208 CONSANGUINITY   relationship by blood or birth  After everything she had done to atone for her crime, after she had turned her marriage into an arctic wasteland and allowed a surgeon to tie her fallopian tubes, consanguinity wasn’t finished with her. “All this nonsense comes from the Dark Ages. We know now that most birth deformities result from the consanguinity of the parents.”
2209 IGNORAMUS  an ignorant or stupid person. “Puerto Rico is part of the United States, you ignoramus!” “Of course it’s not well, you ignoramus,” Master said, staring at the pair of slippers on the floor.
2210 POSTDICTION  events such as plane crashes and natural disasters. I began by imitating their accents, using their diction, trusting their every direction. He picked up on my Victorian flourishes, my antique diction, my girls’ school propriety.
2211 PIRATE  a person who attacks and robs ships at sea. Digger, and I played pirates in that boathouse and used our dinghy for the pirate ship. Told me about friends in the business who were boarded by pirates who tied them to the masts, and then took their stash.
2212 SENSUALIST  a person devoted to physical, especially sexual, pleasure. The group favored the sensualists among the late Victorians ” Rossetti and especially Swinburne ” and Rosenblitt brings out their “pagan” aestheticism as it emerged in illustrations and motifs of the faun and the goat-god Pan. Rajamouli is a cinematic sensualist, something not often seen or appreciated in the action genre.
2213 REVELER  a person who is enjoying themselves in a lively and noisy way. He dashed onto the track and immediately disappeared in the swirling masses of revelers. Behind it trailed a growing bunch of revelers, dancing along with the beat, drinking and throwing their empty bottles to shatter against the huge, impervious machine.
2214 ODE a lyric poem, typically one in the form of an address to a particular subject, written in varied or irregular metre.  In its many rooms, the men read their odes, or played the violin, or performed their philosophical exercises. I wrote more sonnets and odes to everything imaginable.
2215 COMRADE  (among men) a colleague or a fellow member of an organization. Next to me, someone was trying to awaken his neighbor, his brother, perhaps, or his comrade. He was a leader of the legion now, doing what he was born to do”fighting the enemies of Rome, upholding its legacy, protecting the lives of his friends and comrades.
2216 SLANDER  the action or crime of making a false spoken- statement damaging to a person’s reputation Because telling lies about people is called slander. “But why slander me? I don’t follow you, Brother Jack. I’m no enemy, as he well knows. I’m a brother too,” I said, seeing his smile.
2217 EXPURGATE  to remove an objectionable part from a book She had gotten used to the nuns, a literature of appropriate sentiments, poems with a message, expurgated texts. Dewey admits it, but he adds that except for an apparently somewhat expurgated version of his own conduct, Hickock’s story supports Smith’s.
2218 EXTIRPATE eradicate or destroy completely.   The curse of knowledge hides them from the writer, who therefore must put some effort into spotting and extirpating them. The only solution he said, was to “extirpate, utterly, if possible” the Indigenous peoples who pushed back against settlements.
2219 PROPENSITY  an inclination or natural tendency to behave in a particular way. Growing up in a single-parent home roughly doubles a child’s propensity to commit crime. There is little indication that the motivations and propensities for warfare have diminished since, and both conventional and nuclear weaponry has become far more deadly.
2220 GRATIS   without charge; free.  Who needs a girl who isn’t dedicated enough to work gratis in a project that would benefit her race? “Deo gratis,” the choir sang back and the people stood to leave.
2221 SINECURE   a position requiring little or no work but giving the holder status or financial benefit.  The Wardenship was actually the number two job at the Mint, and could be treated as a sinecure. He even had a job, a sinecure, more highly paid than his old job had been.
2222 SWAT  to slap with a flat object  Throughout the day his train pushed through a landscape scoured by snow as a blizzard whitened the nation in a swath from the Atlantic to Minnesota. Auntie Venus had been for almost half a century a vital nursing presence across a swath of the Northern Territories in Canada.
2223 VEXATION  the state of being annoyed, frustrated, or worried. Tears of vexation started to his eyes, but he held them back, for he remembered that a brave and “gentil” knight does not cry. This was a fact she could not blast with her disbelief, and so she cried with vexation and went to neither dance.
2224 MASOCHISM  the tendency to derive sexual gratification from one’s own pain or humiliation.  They carried a book about the history of American socialism. If you came home waxing poetic about socialism and ménages à trois, then they might be a little freaked out, too.
2225 ENDOCRINOLOGY  the branch of physiology and medicine concerned with endocrine glands and hormones. Maybe she was already making the connections she would later make, between village babies and this suburban one, between old wives’ tales and new endocrinology . Brigitte Leeners, a professor of reproductive endocrinology at the University hospital in Zurich, is clear that there was no association found between hormone levels and how well the women did in their cognitive tests.
2226 ARSONIST  a person who commits arson. “Which means my husband couldn’t possibly have been the arsonist,” Mom said, “unless you’d care to demonstrate how a person with all ten fingers sealed in hard plaster would go about striking a match.” I had recently had a visit from Winnie and I learned that 8115 Orlando West, the house in which we had been married and which I considered home, had been burned down by arsonists.
2227 HINTERLAND  parts of a country behind the coast or a river’s banks  While Marcus lay trembling with fear and guilt, and Julius in chains tracked Boots into the hot, dry hinterland, Aurelia was in her mother’s private apartment, where she had been summoned. Acre is in the western Amazon, on Bolivia’s northern border, the hinterlands of the hinterlands.
2228 ISTHMUS  a narrow strip of land with sea on either side, forming a link between two larger areas of land. Brannon asked, as a smile began to build on the spartan isthmus around his mouth. However, they are fragmented by geography and by ecology: the Isthmus of Panama, only 40 miles wide, virtually transects the Americas geographically, as do the isthmus’s Darien rain forests and the northern Mexican desert ecologically.
2229 SWAMPS  an area of low-lying, uncultivated ground where water collects; a bog or marsh. At the swamp a gnarled tree had been drawn. The centaur came up grinning, covered in swamp muck and blue paint, and gave Tyson two thumbs up.
2230 MASQUE   a dramatic performance “Lady Isobel did not want me to attend them at the royal masque.” For the moment, movements in school hallways are dancelike, a procession of postures in a sexual masque.
2231 MASCOT  a person or thing that is supposed to bring good luck, especially one linked to a particular organization or event. A family enjoys a day of water rides, followed by a meal and a hug from a raccoon mascot, and then the kids are tucked into bed by very happy parents. She wore one red glove and one blue glove, and had written Go! on one cheek and Red Pandas! on the other cheek, in support of our mascot.
2232 LABYRINTH  a complicated irregular network of passages or paths in which it is difficult to find one’s way; a maze. Laura began, snapping on the overly bright overhead light, scaring off whatever shy passion Yoyo, with the blue thread of her writing, had just begun coaxing out of a labyrinth of feelings. If you somehow managed to survive all of the traps and find your way through the labyrinth, you would eventually reach the crypt of Acererak the Demi-Lich.
2233 SUMPTUARY  relating to or denoting laws that limit private expenditure on food and personal items. I mumble thanks for the advice, feeling like I’ve just been stripped naked by the crazed enforcer of some ancient sumptuary law: No chatting for you, girl. In the same way ““ as Mozart’s first audiences would have known ““ sumptuary laws in Europe had long forbidden ‘superfluity’ for the lower classes and dictated who could wear what.
2234 PROMISCUOUS  having or characterized by many transient sexual relationships.  The mice, belonging to the genus Peromyscus, are often studied in biology fieldwork because they are so abundant. The authors of the second study, by the Public Health Agency of Canada, were circumspect, writing that “the potential for the establishment of Peromyscus rodents as a North American reservoir for SARS-CoV-2 is unknown.”
2235 PARVENU  a person of obscure position who has gained wealth. Worse, they had begun to attract the wrong sort of people”parvenus from Boston and New York. Another contradiction emerges from a discussion of the red squirrel, which clings on in Scotland in the face of strong competition from its parvenu grey cousin.
2236 OTOLOGY    a branch of medicine which studies normal and pathological anatomy and physiology of the ear (hearing and vestibular sensory systems and related structures and functions) as well as their diseases, diagnosis and treatment. The analogy is more poetic than precise, for the cell accomplishes its “burning” with only the moderate heat of the body’s normal temperature. I was misled partly by the analogy with the surface of the earth.
2237 LIBERTARIAN  person believing in free will Politically, they were conservative, closer to libertarian than liberal. It has radical and, in modern terms, libertarian implications, because it regards any accommodation of personal freedom to governmental discipline as dangerous.
2238 LICENTIOUS  a man of lax moral  Her mother had consorted frequently with white men and tutored Nag in licentious practices. The older man at the dormitory leered at her”there was always a licentious implication when a girl visited the men’s housing”and informed her that Caesar was still at the factory.
2239 ABRIDGMENT  the action of abridging a text. “We have to read an abridgment, and it’s still a hundred and sixty pages long.” The version produced by high schools is an authorized abridgment that essentially consists of the musical’s first half.
2240 ANACHRONISM  a thing belonging or appropriate to a period other than that in which it exists, especially a thing that is conspicuously old-fashioned. Not only was the group all black, it was also the only stand-alone all-female professional section left at the laboratory, and by the late 1950s, that had become an anachronism. “However, I told you that it would be like this. I am an anachronism. People realize this and resent it.”
2241 ALMANAC   an annual calendar containing important dates and statistical information such as astronomical data and tide tables. He was summoned to Graz, in Austria, to teach secondary school mathematics, and began a little later to prepare astronomical and meteorological almanacs and to cast horoscopes. She broke down at the sight of next year’s almanac.
2242 REIN  a long, narrow strap attached at one end to a horse’s bit, typically used in pairs to guide or check a horse in riding or driving. I unwind the leather reins from my forearms and nervously slide one leg up and over Friday’s saddle while I inch myself to the crates. Only thumb and forefinger remained on the hand that held the reins; the other fingers had been sheared off catching a wildling’s axe that would otherwise have split his skull.
2243 LEASH     a dog’s lead I felt the night leash tug on my wrist. Meanwhile Dustfinger had hauled the dogs over to the nearest tree and was just winding their leashes around the cracked bark when Flatnose came out of his daze.
2244 ABDURATE unmouable – stubborn – unyeilding He maneuvered for tiny advantages and exhibited an obdurate patience. So the boy went to the front door, rang the bell, hoping some other less obdurate servant might let him in.
2245 ABRIDGE to condense “Fine. But can we go with the abridged version? We’re in a bit of a rush.” The law was intended to reduce overgrazing by cattle, but its impact would be to further abridge land for Africans.
2246 ABSOLUTEZERO the standing point of absolute temperature In the Kelvin scale, zero degrees is absolute zero. Who would dare to expect anything but absolute zero from a painter of swastikas?
2247 ACCELERATE cause to move faster Gradually the performing range of the tune-carrying top line was extended upwards and higher, a process accelerated by the use of boys with high voices and even – heaven forfend! – women in some vocal groups. Unless the pace of decision-making accelerated, he knew, the fair would fall irreparably behind schedule, yet if anything the barriers to efficiency were increasing in size and number.
2248 ACCILERATE speed up Mariel staged her attack, pushing me down the strip, and as she accelerated with her arm a little behind in speed, I was able to hit her in preparation of her attack. For Saturn as for Jupiter, the magnetic field captures and accelerates the charged particles of the solar wind.
2249 ACEROSE needle shaped    
2250 ACCESS means of approaching After tipping the doorman to get access to the dressing rooms, he climbed the stairs to the third floor. It’s like some deep dark part of her that I’ve gotten out, that no one else has access to.
2251 ADHOC for the purpose Analyst Mark Galeotti has called the Russian system an “adhocracy”, where proximity to power and personal contacts matter more than formal titles.  
2252 ADULATION excessive devotion “Yessuh, Mr. Morgan,” Bigger said; his eyes filled with mock adulation and respect. Heads lifted at the jarring of the doors, but unlike the irritation mirrored on all faces when Master Hyrrokkin had laughed, this time they registered surprise before shifting into adulation or envy.
2253 AERIAL living in air Most of the houses had radios with a short-wave band and a high aerial on the roof so that wives could make contact with the fishing boats during these long cruises. When the trickle started they adjusted her aerial position.
2254 AERONAUTICS science of flight of aeroplanes The airship was three days from completing a sensational feat of aeronautics, circumnavigation of the globe. Computing pools attached to specific tunnels or branches grew larger, spawned their own supervisors, and gave the female professionals the opportunity to specialize in a particular subfield of aeronautics.
2255 AFFINITY having a natural attention to Thus copper sits on top of silver and silver sits on top of gold because of their chemical affinities as metals, while helium, neon, and argon are in a column made up of gases. Since their native mothers are gone, their strongest affinity has always been with their white fathers, the Afrikaners.
2256 ANGLOPHOBE a person who hates england “Well, this is but an island, and a small one at that; consequently I won’t let it worry me,” soliloquizes the anglophobe.  
2257 ALLUSIVE having reference to something The story told by myxotricha is as deep as any myth, as profoundly allusive. She has pursued the central mystery tangentially and allusively in a clever, skilfully woven, teasing and compelling story “inspired by Lewis Carroll and Alice”.
2258 ALLUVIAL sandy soil deposited by running water I wondered why my father worked so hard panning for diamonds in the alluvial mines, diamonds that he would not be allowed to keep. During the rest of the year, the climate is drier, and farmers plant and tend their milpas on the alluvial soil.
2259 ALPINISM mountain climbing For his climb, Lama won a Piolet d’Or ” the Golden Ice Axe ” Alpinism’s biggest prize. “Alpinism is my first passion, and I decided I had to make my passion my job.”
2260 AMOYAN strong and powerful woman. But unlike in Amman, the boys playing in Clarkston seemed to come from many different backgrounds”they were white, black, and brown. She didn’t feel that she could be herself in Amman, and she was willing to endure a split with her family to live in a place where she could lead the life she pleased.
2261 AMPHIBIOUS animals that can be live on land and water. “You know, Dad,” Brinker broke in, “the Coast Guard does some very rough stuff, putting the men on the beaches, all that dangerous amphibious stuff.” Our LSTs moved up to the line of departure at 0730 and our amphibious alligators rolled down the ramp into the water.
2262 AMPLE adequate or more than dequate – in extent, size etc. Between the beats she had ample time to write her own obituary. I’m thinking I might be able to slip away when Plutarch, whose ample frame has been blocking the television, catches sight of me and waves urgently for me to join them.
2263 ANAESTHETICS drugs causing unconciousness such as chloroform. What must it have been like before there were anaesthetics? Nosocomephobics will shudder on entering this surgical theatre, the oldest in Europe, which predates anaesthetics and antiseptics.
2264 ANAESTHETIST one who gives chloroform to a patient. Yuri, who assists the anaesthetist, lays me on a trolley and takes my blood pressure and temperature. Now on its sixth season, the show centres on an upper-middle-class African American family, living in a largely white LA neighbourhood, and stars Ross as the matriarch, anaesthetist Rainbow “Bow” Johnson.
2265 ANATOMIST one who describes the parts of the human body. The first anatomist regularly to disagree with Galen on the basis of direct experience was Jacopo Berengario da Carpi, whose Anatomy was published in 1535, only a few years before Vesalius’s Fabric. He was a born anatomist and so devoted to his studies that he sometimes illicitly borrowed limbs, organs, and other parts from cadavers and took them home for leisurely dissection.
2266 ANILE like a weak old woman. A half anile flickered across the queen’s face. The object of Zoe’s anile affection was a capable man, and justified his rather humiliating elevation by good service to the empire.
2267 ANIMOMETER instrument used for measuring the force and velocity of winds. El Faro didn’t even have a working anemometer, a wind-speed gauge. Officers were checking seven wind-detection machines, known as anemometers, as the balloons proceeded down the route from West 77th Street and Central Park West to the grandstand at Herald Square.
2268 ANONYMUS that which is written without name. I actually wrote her an anonymous note and simply said, “I feel your pain”you’re not alone!” To her I’m just another anonymous face, another applicant, another someone who wants something from America.
2269 ANTAGONIST enemy – antagonism He liked that there was a new protagonist in the same world and that the previous protagonist was now the antagonist. He moved sideways between the young man and the sun, so that his antagonist had to squint and blink.
2270 ANTIBIOTICS drugs which completely destroys bacteria. The antibiotics that the doctor prescribed for me healed the terrible case of tonsillitis I had arrived with. Because there are no hormones or antibiotics in their feed to speed growth, they get to live a few days longer.
2271 APHELION the point in a planet’s orbit that tis farthest from the sun. When Alpha sets, Beta is at zenith; when Gamma is at aphelion, Delta is near. What is the period of revolution for a comet with aphelion at 5 AU and perihelion at the orbit of Earth?
2272 APIRIGEE a point as above that is nearest to earth. Sitting by the playground in the Luxembourg Gardens, I listened to Lolita, abridged with James Mason and unabridged with Jeremy Irons. He had been learning about journalism at school, from a textbook, and it seemed to him that his father had abridged some basic journalistic principle.
2273 APOLOGIST one who says sorry (sorrow) for his mistakes. “The system is not run by a bunch of racists,” the apologist would explain. It is a small reminder that Indians were neither the peaceful, love-thy- neighbor types envisioned by some apologists or the brutal, ceaselessly aggressive warriors decried by some political critics.
2274 APORHTEGM words spoken by great men. No one devised this grammar, and no one wrote down its rules, but they came to be generally understood for the simple reason that they were based on the paradigm case of geographical discovery. I guess money sounds too much like … money. paradigm.
2275 APOSTASY to renounce one’s faith or religion. Hus and Jerome, with the mitres of apostasy upon their heads, had flamed and fizzled at the stake. As Harris further elaborated, there is “abundant evidence that vast numbers of Muslims believe dangerous things about infidels, apostasy, blasphemy, jihad, and martyrdom.”
2276 AQAUNTIE relating to water For readers unfamiliar with these truly awesome aquanauts, a sprinkling of facts is gracefully woven into the story as well. If there’s an armchair aquanaut, they will appreciate the view without the goose bumps.
2277 ARBOREAL living in trees How many forlorn hours in the arboreal city with only meerkats for company? These trees were without a doubt the gates into a meerkat arboreal city with more bustle in it than Calcutta.
2278 ARCHAEOLOGIST one who studies human antiquities. Apparently the majority learned from mistakes; after this time, archaeologists don’t see this kind of widespread erosion, though they do see lots and lots of maize. “It’s not quite a lamp,” her mother, renowned curator and archaeologist Dr. K. P. Shah, had told her the first time she showed it to Aru.
2279 ARCHAISM using ancient languages. She was taken halfway up the Hudson in an excursion steamer fitted out in the archaism of the mad Twenties. To him, imperial China’s archaism was a grand conspiracy to silence the uneducated majority.
2280 ARCHEOLOGIST one who make a scientific study of human antiquities. But all the pages and pages of documentation they had gathered from the lawyers and geologists and archeologists didn’t help them in the end. When I saw something, I used a paintbrush to get rid of the dirt, just like a real archeologist.
2281 ARCHIPELOGE see which has number of small islands. In particular, the Tongan Archipelago lies close enough to the Fijian, Samoan, and Wallis Archipelagoes to have permitted regular voyaging between archipelagoes, and eventually to permit Tongans to undertake the conquest of Fiji. That is true, for instance, of the Societies, Samoa, the Marquesas, and especially Hawaii, the Polynesian archipelago with the highest mountains.
2282 ARCHIVE that what is not in current use. “He has a paper trail. I know, seems so archaic, right? It’s at the Columbia anthropology archive.” At the archive in Fort Worth, I pulled records from the U.S.
2283 ARTICULATE to pronounce clearly. I repeat, louder this time, articulating every syllable, like he doesn’t speak the language. “Doo,” “boo,” “la,” etc., are easily pronounceable and fun for children to articulate.
2284 AUDIBLE that which can be heard. There was an audible murmur in the courtroom. “Another coincidence,” she said, her voice barely audible.
2285 AUDIOPHONE instrument used for improving imperfect sense of hearing. Some of the confusion might be explained by poor communications between Ahuas and the outside world ““ there was only the hospital’s radiophone and mail that reached the post irregularly. Receivers in the ceiling allowed them to use radiophones.
2286 AURORAAUSTRALIS southern lights Many nights, the dog teams set up a wolf pack howl, sending their lonesome cries up toward an aurora australis that was bright enough to cast shadows on the endless field of ice. As the aurora australis flickered overhead, Wild came in a dog’s whisker ahead of Hurley, with a time of two minutes and nine seconds.
2287 AURURABOREALIS northern lights. I turn the ceiling into a cloudless, starry night sky and let the aurora borealis glimmer just beyond their fingertips as shooting stars zip across the auditorium. He saw the aurora borealis, meteor showers over tumbling black waves, night skies so clear the stars seemed within reach, hung from a ceiling by fishing wire.
2288 AUTOCRAT who exercises absolute power. This new order of things disgusted him, and he howled dismally for “Marmar’, as his angry passions subsided, and recollections of his tender bondwoman returned to the captive autocrat. It’s the game face he’s seen her use to stare down Congress, to cow autocrats.
2289 AVAIRY a building for keeping – rearing and breeding of birds. Lourdes refilled the mosaic-lined fountain with sweet water and built an aviary in the garden, stocking it with toucans and cockatoos, parrots, a macaw, and canaries that sang in high octaves. Simon said she went left, but left could mean the picnic tables, or back through the trees, or she could have circled back behind the aviary.
2290 AVALANCHE a heavy mass of snow falling down a hill with great noise. Xan tried to pluck the memories as they tumbled by, but they were like bright pebbles in an avalanche: they flashed briefly in the light, and then they were gone. It was not the most ideal terrain, plagued as it was by mudslides, floods, and avalanches.
2291 AVARICE greed – inordinate desire to gain and hoard wealth. He did not behave this way out of avarice; it was simply that his family no longer interested him. “Our only chance is clever bargaining. Cliff trolls are cunning and ruthless, but their avarice can be a weakness.”
2292 BALLISTICS science dealing with the motion of projectile like rockets bombs & shells. Early researchers used them in the field of ballistics to, say, measure the pace and trajectory of a bullet. Painting, cartography and ballistics do not strike us as cutting-edge sciences but, once, they were.
2293 BALMACCAN a type of man’s overcoat. In front stood the throne covered with purple, and round about it a triumphal baldachin made of banners, shields, and morning-stars. Each wheel bears the image of the sun, and six pillars, surmounted by a golden drapery, form a sort of baldachin over the car.
2294 BARBARISM mixed language As European nation-states descended into industrial-scale barbarism in the second half of the 1930s, musicians in these countries were placed in a difficult position. Mrs. D. C. Taylor, a frequent visitor to the fair, called Krupp’s biggest gun “a fearful hideous thing, breathing of blood and carnage, a triumph of barbarism crouching amid the world’s triumphs of civilization.”
2295 BENEFACTOR kindly helper. one who makes a request or endowment. “And by you,” he said, “my little benefactor. I knew you were a clever one.” Only then did he permit them to bury him, not in any ordinary way, but with the honors reserved for Macondo’s greatest benefactor.
2296 BENEVOLENT kind hearted  At the front of the hall, Professor Ghering holds his hands up for attention, a benevolent smile on his face. Lexie’s application had been submitted, and she was in a benevolent mood.
2297 BIBLIOGRAPHER one who writes big books. Over the years, various bibliographers have tried to improve on the Hinman, or at least shrink it. Kells goes on a quest through the oddly perverse world of booksellers and bibliographers, in search of Shakespeare’s own tomes.
2298 BIBLOPHILE one who loves the study of books. “What about all these other kids?” said Sierra, gesturing to the tables filled with the country’s top young bibliophiles. She is a true bibliophile, a free spirit and a content Luddite when it comes to the computer age, and she seems to accept rootlessness as her natural state.
2299 BIFURCATE divided into two branches. The AEC chairman could not imagine how a bifurcated weapons program would operate or how the reduction in responsibility for the Super would affect morale on the New Mexico mesa. The laser beam, aimed with skill, based on years of training, bifurcated Inspector Garland’s head.
2300 BIOLOGIST one who studies the science of animals and plants. While my family’s history of mental illness was cutting through my consciousness like a red line, my scientific work as a cancer biologist was also converging on the normalcy and abnormalcy of genes. According to Chomsky, who has examined it as a biologist looks at live tissue, language “must simply be a biological property of the human mind.”
