One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 24

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.

2301 BIOTA animal and plant life of a religion or period. “These radioactive isotopes behave differently than tritium in the ocean and are more readily incorporated into marine biota or seafloor sediments,” says Ken Buesseler, a marine chemist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. “These radioactive isotopes behave differently than tritium in the ocean and are more readily incorporated into marine biota or seafloor sediments,” says Ken Buesseler, a marine chemist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
2302 BLACKBOX an apparatus which records the fight data of an aeroplane and is also a voice recorder. Mrs. Baxter held a small black box tied with a thin pink ribbon. It seemed impossible that he could be inside that long black box that was lying in the middle of the courtyard.
2303 BLACKBINDING kidnapping for selling into slavery. That was all she could think of while Mo was showing her the room and telling her that everything was all right now; he just had to do his bookbinding work, then they’d go home. I’d be leaving town soon anyway, and had little intention of ever coming back to the bookbinding plant.
2304 BLASPHEMER one who speakes evil – impcous one – irrevirent one. “Oh yes. Several times. Last time I tried to take a shower, in fact. You could hear her screaming about blasphemers all the way down the street.” And I waited, as a blasphemer waits for lightning.
2305 BLOODTRANSFUSION the process the transfusing blood of one person into blood stream of another person. Dr. Musoke abandoned his efforts to give his patient a blood transfusion for fear that the patient would bleed to death out of the small hole in his arm. Yo-Yo Ma continues to play, and it’s like the piano and cello are being poured into my body, the same way that the IV and blood transfusions are.
2306 CACOPHONOUS harsh or discordant sound. The combined sound of bells tolling and sirens wailing seemed not just a cacophonous way to ring in the new year, but a sound that symbolized a new era in our freedom struggle. She approached the cacophonous sleeper, now on his side.
2307 CADAVER dead body Holmes admitted arranging the cadaver to suggest that Pitezel had died in an accidental explosion. Miss Volker had stressed that if I found Mrs. Dubicki dead to pinch her arm and make certain she wasn’t just napping because, as she said, “When old people nap they look like cadavers.”
2308 CADUCEUS emblem of medical profession and us army medical corps. He stuck his caduceus in the sand like an umbrella pole. The caduceus changed into a cell phone and Hermes slipped it into his pocket.
2309 CALIBER diameter of bore of gun – degree of merit. There was no exchange between us; Betty said nothing, being the caliber of wife that she is, with the depth of understanding that she has”but I could feel the envelopment of her comfort. She said, “Harvard. And if not Harvard, Princeton. And if not Princeton, Yale. And if not Yale, Columbia. And if not Columbia, Stanford. He was that caliber of student.”
2310 CALORIMETER an instrument used for measuring quantities of heat. This energy is measured by burning food in a calorimeter, which is how the units are determined. The temperature change measured by the calorimeter is used to derive the amount of heat transferred by the process under study.
2311 CANON church law body of principles. The canon of black autobiography sensibly includes scores of books about resistance to the American system. It was, at the time, the classic American canon, but also what Volpe felt like teaching and what he thought we would like.
2312 CARBURETOR an apparatus used in an internal combustion engine for charging air with petrol “Accessories” like bumpers, carburetors, and headlights had to be purchased separately. And the next thing you know, she’s out there in the driveway squinting down at a carburetor or something like it was the most fascinating thing she’d ever seen.
2313 CARDINAL of prime importance It is in a way the most civilized of all the cardinals, and its use is only forced on us by the needs of cultivated modes of thought. The thought of the cardinals driven to such unnatural behavior repelled me.
2314 CARDIOGRAPH a medical instrument for tracing heat movements. Cardiac impulse, after a few days’ use of the Crat�gus, is greatly strengthened and yields that low, soft tone so characteristic of the first sound, as shown by the cardiograph. Ryan says tests done this week show no changes in his heart since his previous cardiograph four years earlier.
2315 CARIES dental decay She maintains that strength in simplicity which got you on to Marling in the first place, yet caries a depth in her melodies which will won’t leave you. All signatures are secured by Pruitt himself who, in the role of consummate fan, always caries a Sharpie and blank unstretched canvas with him just in case.
2316 CARNIOLOGY describe the habits, merits and demerits of a man by seeing his skull carniologist. It is observations of this kind, particularly, that have served to discredit craniology as an independent science. The Ethnographical and Anthropological collection consists of above 550 objects, among which are 100 skulls, representing the craniology of almost all the races of the globe.
2317 CARNIVORE flesh eater – dogs – cats – lions etc The moon animals that did not hibernate came out to hunt, but I had given up the habits of a carnivore since living with the old people. I’m a carnivore, from a long line of carnivores going back five hundred million years and who knows how long before that.
2318 CARRION dead and putrifying flesh My flesh will feed the wolves and carrion crows, she thought sadly, and worms will burrow through my womb. But others, probably overcome with smoke, escaped the worst of the flames and now lie reeking in various states of decomposition, carrion for scavengers, blanketed by flies.
2319 CATASTROPHE denotes the last stage of a tradegy. That’s why I was more prepared for this catastrophe than most kids my age would be, or maybe any kids my age. Whatever the answer, year after year, Tessie faithfully took me to him, in repayment for an act of charity during a catastrophe he would no longer acknowledge.
2320 CENTIPEDE an insect with many legs. “Certainly. Flies, bugs, grasshoppers, choice beetles, moths, butterflies, tasty cockroaches, gnats, midges, daddy longlegs, centipedes, mosquitoes, crickets”anything that is careless enough to get caught in my web. I have to live, don’t I?” Milligan ushered the children into a damp, dimly lit underground passage, where centipedes twisted away at their approach and other slithery creatures they heard but didn’t see retreated into the shadows.
2321 CERVINE of deers or the deer family – deerlike. The entire horn, or any branch of the horn, of a cervine animal, as of a stag. It was a magnificent cervine army with white banners, and I shall never look upon its like again.
2322 CHAGRIEN vexation from humiliation or disappointment. You just can’t tell what he’s really thinking, Mr. Richardson thought, and then, instantly chagrined, What a terrible thing to think. “Not those letters,” Corporal Whitcomb corrected, plainly enjoying the chaplain’s chagrin.
2323 CHANDELIER candle maker – merchant – dealer in supplies and provisions. Overhead, strings of globe lights were looped around tall mirrors, bedposts, and the odd nonfunctional chandelier. “How tempting it is to lose myself in you. To let go. To let you keep me from breaking chandeliers rather than constantly worrying about it, myself.”
2324 CHEMOTHERAPY controls of infections by chemicals. And then I saw him as the adult who had drifted away, thin and frail, his face bony from the chemotherapy treatments. After leaving the Mayo Clinic, Gey spent several days in New York City at Sloan-Kettering for another study, and he underwent chemotherapy at Hopkins using a drug not yet approved for use in humans.
2325 CHIARASCURO distribution of light and shade in a picture. What Corelli did was create a musical version of chiaroscuro by contrasting a big-sounding band of stringed instruments with a small group, switching between the big and the small throughout the piece. Reader, do you know the definition of the word “chiaroscuro”? If you look in your dictionary, you will find that it means the arrangement of light and dark, darkness and light together.
2326 CHIROMANCHY fortune telling through palm reading – palmistry. Séances were a fad; so were hypnotism, chiromancy and telepathy. “They may try their chiromancy on me, when they please, and do me all the harm they can for half a crown, which is, I believe, the stipulated sum.”
2327 CHORONOLOGY arrangements of events according to dates or times of occurance. The idea of discovery simply could not take hold in a culture so preoccupied with Biblical chronology and liturgical repetition on the one hand, and secular ideas of rebirth, recurrence and reinterpretation on the other. The exact chronology of their evolution remains unknown, but could be resolved by the next object that a farmer discovers in a field.
2328 CHRONOLOGER one who writes the details of transactions which made in a country. About chronology: Dates for scientific research refer to when the research was conducted, not when it was published. The major intellectual pursuit of his last years was a concordance and calibration of the chronologies of ancient civilizations, very much in the tradition of the ancient historians Manetho, Strabo and Eratosthenes.
2329 CHRONOMETER an instrument kept on boardship for measuring accurate time. Hinkston said, “But we checked every mile of the way. Our chronometers said so many miles. We went past the Moon and out into space, and here we are. I’m positive we’re on Mars.” Armed with sextant, chronometers, compass, and nautical tables, Frank Worsley, skipper of Endurance, had been able to calculate and plot their every position.
2330 CINEMATOGRAPH it contains a series of lenses arranged to throw on screen an enlarged image of photography Or it might have been my father’s cinematography. But like a lot of shows these days, it offers the compensations of lovely scenery captured in quite satisfactory digital cinematography, in this case real locations in the Cook Islands and New Zealand.
2331 CLARIFY make clear. Axel needs more clues, more of Ms. Dale’s favorite word: clarify. “What I really mean is, a man of discretion,” I clarified.
2332 CLASSIC that which is acclaimed as an excellent work. He had to get so close that the bull saw his body, and would start for it, and then shift the bull’s charge to the flannel and finish out the pass in the classic manner. The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese is classic.
2333 CLIO greek muse of history. Clio was Muse of history, Urania of astronomy, Melpomene of tragedy, Thalia of comedy, Terpsichore of the dance, Calliope of epic poetry, Erato of love-poetry, Polyhymnia of songs to the gods, Euterpe of lyric poetry. With her dusty scrolls, Clio is not just the muse of history, but an emblem of the cumulated wisdom of the ages.
2334 COALESCE grow into one – blend – unite – fuse. As soon as there was a centre of gravity, or a “home’ in the sound, the relationship between chords also started to coalesce into hierarchies. And nor did Feral consciously summon the sheaves of cloud that coalesced around them, blocking out the sky, the horizon, the Cusp, shrinking the world to here”this garden and this garden alone.
2335 COERCION intimidation by threat or duress – forceful – compulsion. Their alternative”there was an alternative, of course, since Milo detested coercion and was a vocal champion of freedom of choice”was to starve. His solution may not always be pretty”it may involve coercion or exorbitant penalties or the violation of civil liberties”but the original problem, rest assured, will be fixed.
2336 COEVAL of the same age or duration – contemporary with. Organs, fluids, eggs, scrotal sacs all might come to mind; the secret life of the body and our most primitive biological heritage swarm this nest of coeval somethings. Like his colleague and exact coeval David Smith, Ferber explored Surrealism’s anxiety-provoked hybrid anatomical forms in his early abstract works.
2337 COGNOMEN surname or nickname. Bob and Roberta Smith, it should be noted, is the cognomen of not two but one British artist who specializes in humorously mocking art institutions and the conventional attitudes they tend to promulgate. And so our narrator, with the concealing cognomen “Jane Smith,” holds down a well-paying job as a security analyst, probing the defensive systems of corporate clients for weaknesses.
2338 COLLEINY complete with buildings and work – caolmines. One Irishman observed bitterly: “The colleens who found jobs in the kitchens of the wealthy were called “pot-wallopers,’ “biddies,’ and kitchen canaries. “If you were to fight a battle,” said Gawaine, but he left out about the colleens, “you might fed better.”
2339 COMATOSE in a coma – lacking energy – lethargic. I was surrounded by comfort while Mama and Baba were comatose in the hospital. Temp and Tick seemed almost comatose from fear.
2340 COMELY pleasing in appearance – fair – pretty. This new white knight was not so tall nor comely as the old one, but he was bigger across the chest, burlier, his arms thick with muscle. Thus, the only craft little practised among them was shoe-making; but they had long and skilful fingers and could make many other useful and comely things.
2341 COMMUTATOR device for reversing direction of electrical current. Wire coils connect to the commutator, which turns the rotor. Brushes gather electricity from the commutator.” ” eclipses the clarity and immediacy of the working model.
2342 CONCATINATE linked together One is a flat branching structure, in which a series of mostly uncomplicated clauses are concatenated side by side with and or with commas. In any collection worth our admiration, the end and shape of one story should cast its shadow over the next, and so on, until they all concatenate and form a greater shape by book’s end.
2343 CONCETRIC having the same centre. To accommodate the dances, the Osage had erected, amid the encroaching wilderness, a pavilion, with a mushroom-shaped metal roof and a circular earth floor surrounded by concentric rows of wooden benches. Philosophy tells us that the universe consists of concentric spheres; the actual patterns made by the planets as they move through the heavens is a subject for astronomy, which is a sub-branch of mathematics.
2344 CONFLAGRATIVE combustible – flammable – inflammable But I always hear myself displacing the two languages, conflating them”maybe conflagrating them”for there’s so much rubbing and friction, a fire always threatens to blow up between the tongues. If he were younger, maybe he’d move to a place that wasn’t quaking and conflagrating so much.
2345 CONTAGIOUSDISEASE a disease which spreads by contact. Everyone stays away from me like I have some contagious disease. And the state has rules about children and extended illnesses and contagious diseases, and it doesn’t matter what kind of a school the kid attends.
2346 CONTINENT restrained in regard to desires or passion – especially to sexual desires. Making use of the new corridor, people moved south en masse, spreading over the entire continent. Countries reporting resistance among a large number of other species represent every continent and most of the island groups.
2347 CONVERGE to meet in a point (rays & illness). Hundreds of women converged on the Central Pass Office in downtown Johannesburg. Some way in front of it, before the gate at the bridge-end, the road from the west converged with others coming from the south, and from Barad-dûr.
2348 COOPER maker of casks or barrels. WGrayson7: i like to be on call for all of my best friend’s ex-boyfriends, willupleasebequiet: it takes a village to date tiny cooper. We strolled past the featureless stone walls of the Archives, past a cooper, a bookbinder, an apothecary….
2349 COPY-RIGHT exclusive right to publish a book. The ship’s bow displays an ornate wooden carving in the semblance of a backward copyright symbol. But when Fabyan printed the pamphlets, he claimed the copyrights for himself.
2350 CORALREEF a chain of rocks laying at or near the sea. Dozens of landing craft were broached and stranded, some so badly damaged by the surf and the coral reef that they’d have to be towed back for repair. The shadowed waters conceal a coral reef offshore.
2351 COSTEGATE correct by punishing. Dr. Dadoo, president of the Transvaal Indian Congress, castigated the restrictions and dismissed the offer of parliamentary representation as “a spurious offer of a sham franchise.” She went on in that vein for a while, castigating herself.
2352 CREDULITY trust without proper evidence readiness to believe. Estimo’s implication”that another body might have been substituted for Bobby’s and somehow placed in the grave”tested the credulity of many. Genuine science and mathematical precision are more intriguing than are the “facts” published in supermarket tabloids or a romantic innumeracy which fosters credulity, stunts skepticism, and dulls one to real imponderables.
2353 CRESCOGRAPH instrument used for measuring the growth of plants. Still, the few figures etched on old cemetery headstones are like cryptographs, offering clues to visitors trying to crack the mystical code of how lives were lived. Natural history is not a cryptograph to be deciphered, it is a series of facts and incidents to be observed and recorded.
2354 CRESCENDO gradual increase in force – volume – loudness. In the silence between them the buzz of insects in the hot summer air seemed to crescendo: thousands of tiny wings beating. As Petey drove them home, windows open, hot wind tossing their hair, the song of the crickets seemed to reach a furious crescendo.
2355 CRISIS turning point of danger or disease. Some girls lost their aim in times of crisis. There had been enough distance from the hostage crisis of the seventies, and the Gulf War of the early nineties.
2356 CRYOGENIES branch of physics dealing with very low temparature. Mr. Thiel has, however, used human growth hormones and he has signed up for cryogenics. What kind of research did you do for the science and the cryogenics of “Zero K”?
2357 CRYPTOGRAPH secret writing. Still, the few figures etched on old cemetery headstones are like cryptographs, offering clues to visitors trying to crack the mystical code of how lives were lived. Natural history is not a cryptograph to be deciphered, it is a series of facts and incidents to be observed and recorded.
2358 CRYSTALLOGRAPHY science of crystallization. In the winter of 1950, the head of the Biophysics Unit, J. T. Randall, recruited an additional young scientist to work on crystallography. It was bad enough learning crystallography without having to acquire the witchcraft-like techniques of the biochemist.
2359 CYNOSORE centre of interest – something that strongly attracts attention by its brilliance. They were white people all, with faces turned to the cynosure of race. This was near the climax of “The Path of Pins or the Path of Needles,” a cynosure of this year’s FringeArts Festival in Philadelphia, which began on Sept. 8 and runs until Oct.
2360 CYTOGENETICS cell formation. Public Health Service for 32 years and taught cytogenetics as part of George Washington University’s adjunct faculty, died Feb. 26 at an assisted-living center in Potomac. Similarly, only 16 cases were found among approximately 300,000 referrals to UK regional cytogenetics laboratories for investigation of infertility or previous Down syndrome birth.
2361 DEBTOR one who owes money to another. As a former foreign minister now serving as secretary of state, Jefferson required no instruction on the international implications of Americas debtor status. He had a sickening mental picture of a barn full of ponies, a roadster for Anne, motorcycles, a swimming pool, and, ultimately, the poor house or a debtors’ prison, if they still had such things.
2362 DECALOGUE ten commandments. Most accessible is Decalogue 89 Plus, which marks the 20th anniversary of Kieslowski’s landmark film cycle with a new set of films by 10 young directors. Many ” including the festival’s premieres, Mr. Ratmansky’s “Odessa” and Mr. Peck’s “The Decalogue” ” have enlarged our ideas of what ballet can be.
2363 DECELERATE slow down. I hold myself steady as the bus decelerates and pulls to the curb. Because of this, horses must be brought down from exercise gradually, slowly decelerating over about a half mile after a race and then undergoing a long walk.
2364 DEFENDANT one who is sued by the plaintiff. But why had such a request not been made by the defendants’ attorneys? “In the future, the defendant should be designated by the name under which the indictment was drawn. Mr. Max, I think you should allow the State’s Attorney to continue.”
2365 DEISM got birth and followed principles in a particular caste but telling, he is not god. Werline: I don’t think the Founding Fathers had a form of Christianity that we would immediately recognize today because of the presence of deism. He read Mary Wollstonecraft and boasted of knowing Tom Paine, though he must have disagreed with them too, on account of Wollstonecraft’s rationalism and Paine’s deism.
2366 DEIST one who believes in the existence of god. About 1.5% of the American population identifies as “other faiths,” including “Unitarians, those who identify with Native American religions, Pagans, Wiccans, New Agers, deists, Scientologists, pantheists, polytheists, Satanists and Druids, to name just a few.” In other words, the divine watchmaker imagined by deists like Isaac Newton, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.
2367 DELETTANTE an admirer by the people “There were no scientists in Stuart England,’ we are told, “and all the men we have grouped together under that heading were in their varying degrees dilettantes.’ Our work together flushing out the more dilettante students has made this school a safer, purer place ” SCORPIUS: Has it?
2368 DELIQUISIC become liquide by absorbing moisture from the air – melt away. That was sitting out there, in a state of just deliquescing. The mood is loosened, people starting to mingle like deliquescing particles.
2369 DELITTANTE one who takes up an art – dabbler – a lover of fine arts. Charles wasn’t a dilettante; he was serious about the breeding and created his own new lines of pigeons. Nevertheless, several accomplished alpinists not on her team regarded Pittman as a grandstanding dilettante.
2370 DELUGE anything that overwhelms like a flood – great flood – rain. But one of the many people who regularly brought unpleasant news of the deluge had told her that the company was dismantling its dispensaries to move them to where it was not raining. Shostakovich was denounced by the Soviet Composers’ Union, and then came a deluge of public criticism – even from former friends and colleagues.
2371 DEMONOLOGY ralating to devils – ghost and other terror things. But as the technology of murder improves and the penalties of war increase, a great many people must be made to fly into murderous rages simultaneously for a major war to be mustered. Hints like the stories he sometimes told about the Colonies and their glittering cities, their advanced technology and festive holidays.
2372 DEPILATE remove hair from. Perfumed, depilated, moist with emollients, wearing kohl around her eyes, Victoria let Lefty look upon her. Yet to me she is anything but, with her chipmunk cheeks, close-set eyes and depilated face.
2373 DERMOTOLOGIST one who treates skin diseases. A dermatologist by training, Siemens was a student of Ploetz’s and a vociferous early proponent of racial hygiene. In the morning I called the medical information service and asked for the names of some prominent dermatologists.
2374 DESICEATE dry throughly – remove moisture from. With a total lack of sorrow for his deceased parent, Chickenhound began figuring out his next move. It was a result, Horace knew, of air, mucus, and seawater all mingled by respiration, which meant the deceased had been alive at submersion.
2375 DESPONDENT high – spirited – overflowing with enthusiasm – boiling up. I can imagine, as if I were in his place, how despondent he must sometimes feel at the quarrels. “But for your face I should think you were a little despondent,” said I.
2376 DETENU one who detained in custody. Hundreds of black clergymen, journalists, civil rights activists, teachers, lawyers, students and anyone suspected of subversive acts had been detained. Bryan was detained by the authorities after the first hearing.
2377 DIALYSIS the process for flood purification when the kidneys malfunction. “He has kidney dialysis every other day. It’s exhausting. And he has to have procedures,” said Patti. She was always a small woman, but her dialysis was forcing her to lose weight fast, and soon her short, gaunt frame was an almost comical mismatch with her husband’s bulk.
2378 DILEMMA situation requiring a choice between equally undesirable alternatives – perplexing problem. I knew the money dilemma was just an excuse. Somehow, getting meat and eggs from the Salatins helped these folks solve their dilemma, at least a little.
2379 DIMINISH make or become smaller. “No,” said Will, for it was true: the edge diminished to a thinness so fine that the eye could not reach it. Agonizing minutes drag past as my hopes diminish.
2380 DIMINUENDO gradual increase in force. The composer will not write a diminuendo on that long note, because Brahms, let’s say, expected a musical person to do that automatically. She captured Elizabeth’s dignity, longing and regret in artful details, like a pristinely painful diminuendo on the words “Oh, rimembranza!”
2381 DISSUADE persuade not to do something. “It is of no further use to you. It holds a great deal of importance to me. I will not be dissuaded. Name your price.” “They hope,” Luke said solemnly, “that I will dissuade you from digging up the lovely old scandals.”
2382 DIVIDEND sum payable as profit to an individual by a joint stock company. He understood a lot about how to speculate for land, graze it, subdivide it, make it pay dividends. On the other hand, his decision had yielded an unforeseen dividend: in this moment of crisis, he could hardly be dismissed before he got his degree.
2383 DORSAL situated on bank. His dorsal fin was down and his huge pectorals were spread wide. Shark dorsal fins stood up straight, and dolphin fins were curved back.
2384 DRINKER’SAPPARATUS instrument used to help breathing in infantile paralysis. The remedies which were first administered had, no doubt, weakened the inflammation, and the strangury being no longer kept up by the spasmodic state of the urinary apparatus, camphor sufficed to effect a cure.  
2385 DYNAMO the origin of electricity in a dynamo is the transformation of mechanical energy into energy. “You’re nuts. I’m a dynamo of energy. I come to charge my batteries,” one of the vets insisted. In the assembling room, the dynamos were being put together by two sets of Gamma-Plus dwarfs.
2386 ECCLISIOLOGIST one who studies the science relating to the church. Daniel is writing primarily for Christians, and she is likely to appeal to the folks for whom ecclesiology is of primary concern. Hovorun, now a professor of ecclesiology, international relations and ecumenism at University College Stockholm, said Kirill took Putin’s talk of being a believer with a grain of salt.
2387 ECLECTIC persons with unusual or odd personality. I suck in some coffee, skip to the last paragraph: the inevitable eclectic, the obligatory post-feminist, a however and a despite. As a biracial family, the kids exhibited an eclectic mix of physical characteristics and loved comparing which traits they got from what parent.
2388 ECLOGUE a pastoral poem. Poets are given vast fees by international conglomerates for their latest eclogues, while screenwriters live in poverty, paid a pittance for their largely ignored outpourings. A poem in which persons are represented at speaking alternately; as the third and seventh eclogues of Virgil.
2389 EFFIMINATE a person who is a womanish in his habit. It was necessary for Cyrus to find the Persians unhappy about the rule of the Medes, and the Medes rendered soft and effeminate after a lengthy peace. At such times I even suspected that my nostalgia for sounds”the noisy, intimate Spanish sounds of my past” was nothing more than effeminate yearning.
2390 EGOISM speaking too much of one self. Beneath their posturing surfaces are just more layers of malice, envy and egoism. Atlas is least interesting in the present book when he talks about himself and tries to disguise his egoism and arrogance with a veneer of mock modesty.
2391 ELASTIC one which rescemes its normal shape and size after the stress is releases. The well elastics words down, then catapults echoes up. As he stole glances at her in the rearview mirror, wrapping elastic bands around Tina’s hair, he wondered how he might make the tour last a little longer.
2392 ELEGIAC expressing sorrow or lamentation. And while Lefty stops to breathe it in, I’d like to take this opportunity to resuscitate”for purely elegiac reasons and only for a paragraph”that city which disappeared, once and for all, in 1922. The first songs were vigorous and then Mama Adanna’s voice broke out, husky and elegiac.
2393 ELIXIR not clerical. “An elixir that could be bottled and could make everyone beautiful. Wouldn’t your life be easier?” Miss Velma T. Harkrader was going to enlist the aid of her chemistry class in mixing up some of her “good for what ails you” elixir.
2394 ELLIPSIS the ommission from a sentence of a work or words that would comple the construction. Eventually the detailed observations of the apparent motion of the planets forced him to abandon the idea of circular paths and to realize that planets travel in ellipses. I lost myself in the rhythm of the strokes, my arms tracing long ellipses in the air as if pulling something toward me that refused to come.
2395 EMBEYYLE divert money fraudulently to one’s own use. She had taken an amiable caprice to me. When she saw her friend at the door, his white beard and his amiable, toothless smile, Mariam felt tears stinging the corners of her eyes again.
2396 EMOLLIENT soothing to living tissue. This underscored Bush’s esteem for the breadth of Lawrence’s scientific knowledge and his emollient managerial technique. Perfumed, depilated, moist with emollients, wearing kohl around her eyes, Victoria let Lefty look upon her.
2397 EMPERICISM belief based on experience or observation. The discussion of experience/experiment claims that the English vocabulary fosters empiricism, while the French vocabulary is at odds with it; this would also seem to be true in this case. Experimentation thus required a deeply problematic balancing act between Platonic idealism and a crude empiricism.
2398 ENCOMUIM formal expression of high praise – eulogy. I was expecting a stodgy, older gentleman who’d offer me canned encomiums about Hopkins and then stiffen and ask for the check when he found out the details of my standardized test scores. These aren’t just hollow encomiums from co-stars eager to sell the product.
2399 ENCROACH make inroads on others property. He glared at the poison flood encroaching from all sides. Since only 10 percent of thru-hikers make it this far, and it is too distant for most day hikers, the trail in Maine is much more thinly used, and so the foliage encroaches.
2400 ENDURING long lasting. Perhaps it was the nervous strain of enduring Dad’s driving; perhaps it was simply that fourteen persons have different personal habits. In spite of Shackleton’s enduring resentment of McNeish ever since his mutiny, he resolved that the carpenter must go, in order to make running repairs to the boat.
