One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 30

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.

2901  PHONETICS the study of speech sounder Their teacher, a charming eight-months-pregnant young woman dressed in a traditional Indian sari, moved seamlessly among British, American, and Canadian accents as she demonstrated reading a paragraph designed to highlight phonetics. “Madame,” Princesse said, calling upon her phonetics lessons in order to sound less native and more French.
2902  PHILANDER one who amuses oneself by love making “If you are indeed a knight, ser, defend that slander with your body.” “How dare you speak the name of a good, God-fearing girl? Any man who slanders one of my family has me to reckon with!”
2903  ACOUSTICS study of sound It was a result of the heating vent’s bad acoustics, her own imperfect English, and the fact that she kept lifting her head to hear if anyone was coming. Tiny’s talking to Gary onstage, and because the acoustics are fantastic in our auditorium, I can hear exactly what he’s saying even from the back.
2904  AESTHETICS philosophy of fine arts The rocket began, like the gunpowder that first powered it, in China where it was used for ceremonial and aesthetic purposes. The aesthetic evil of a footnote seems in order just here, I’m afraid.
2905  AGRONOMY science of soil management and the production of field crop Scholars debate these estimates, but nobody disputes that the Haudenosaunee exemplified the formidable tradition of limited government and personal autonomy shared by many cultures north of the Rio Grande. Fearful that ongoing war would mean utter destruction of their nation, a faction of Shawnee accepted a peace agreement that meant giving up some of their autonomy and the territory they used as hunting grounds.
2906  ALCHEMY chemistry in ancient times “Everyone thinks chemistry and alchemy are so similar, but they’re really not. They’re not even related. They just happen to live in the same house.” “Remember what I told you: the world is only the visible aspect of God. And that what alchemy does is to bring spiritual perfection into contact with the material plane.”
2907  CHRONOBIOLOGY study of duration of life 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.
2908  CHROMATICS the science of colors A second technician gauges Werner’s eye color against a chromatic scale on which sixty or so shades of blue are displayed. Figure 4.47: The chromatic scale includes all the pitches normally found in Western music.
2909  COSMOGONY science of the nature of heavenly bodies “But more important was the feeling of the absolute freedom, creative extravagance even, hundreds of ships, creatures, parallel worlds, a complete cosmogony.” “Voyage of Time” is, as its title suggests, a sort of cinematic cosmogony, a lyrical collage that looks at a broad spectrum of natural phenomena artistically and imaginatively.
2910  CYPHER art of secret writings There was always time, after the battle ended but while the music was still going strong, when people from the crowd would form cyphers”impromptu breaking circles”and blow your mind. Ever since Joel Schumacher introduced the celluloid version of the caped crusader’s right-hand man in Batman Forever, the character has been a cypher for all that can go wrong with comic-book movies.
2911  CYTOLOGY study of cells, specially their formation structure and functions She never expected to find feeding her baby a greater challenge than advanced cytology. In Northern Ireland, a less sensitive test called cytology continues to be used which examines the cells under a microscope.
2912  DACTYLOGRAPHY study of finger prints for the purpose of identification The letter was handwritten on fine, unlined paper in looping script so ornate it was almost calligraphy, the black ink varying in tone like that of an old fountain pen. “I will make each of you a list of what you need. I’ll make the list in calligraphy. Watch me, and it will be your first lesson.”
2913  DACTYLOLOGY technique of communication by signs made with the fingers, generally used by deaf Evolution occurred in scientific progress as it happened in nature: a positive trait was passed along, then proliferated; obsolete characteristics withered away, and the technology and the organization evolved into something new. As a result, in the very long run, technology may have developed most rapidly in regions with moderate connectedness, neither too high nor too low.
2914  DEMOGRAPHY study of human population with the help of records of the number of births and deaths 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? When I thought of Western democracy and freedom, I thought of the British parliamentary system.
2915  EPIGRAPHY study of inscriptions There was a biography and picture of the author and steel-cut engravings illustrating scenes from each play. The biographies were closest to the ocean and were especially moldy and not as desirable for the thieves.
2916  EUGENICS study of production of better offspring by the careful selection of parents As an undergraduate, he had formed a Biological Society at Columbia University to explore and support “positive eugenics.” Their pictures were featured prominently on posters, newspapers, and magazines”generating passive support for a national eugenics movement.
2917  ERGONOMY study of effect of environment on workers The eastern frontier, where Dacca was located, was fighting for autonomy from the ruling regime in the west. However, there was an element of autonomy in the younger girl’s unhappiness.
2918  GANEOLOGY study of family ancestries and histories The analogy that is usually given for explaining the curvature of space is to try to imagine someone from a universe of flat surfaces, who had never seen a sphere, being brought to Earth. “I’m making an analogy to the Casimir effect, where you can push plates together with a noticeable radiation pressure from the vacuum,” he says.
2919  HISTOLOGY study of tissues The book was filled with complicated sentences explaining Henrietta’s cells by saying, “its atypical histology may correlate with the unusually malignant behavior of the carcinoma,” and something about the “correlate of the tumor’s singularity.” To the extent that fetal hormones affect brain chemistry and histology, I’ve got a male brain.
2920  HAGIOLOGY study of the lives of saints All had died from some mysterious cataclysm just under twelve million years ago in the time known to geology as the Miocene. In addition to geology, there were a number of other reasons for us to take trips.
2921  ICONOGRAPHY teaching with the aid of pictures and models An icon painter from Crete was imported to render the iconography. Popular guys with nice cars who had no viral iconography casting a shadow over them and would never bring up Chuck E. Cheese’s in her presence sat there rapt.
2922  ICONOLOGY study of symbolic representations I was misled partly by the analogy with the surface of the earth. These are arguments by analogy, based on the circumstances of the case.
2923  JURISPRUDENCE science of law Within a few years after the drug war was declared, however, many legal scholars noted a sharp turn in the Supreme Court’s Fourth Amendment jurisprudence. The justification for the implicit doublespeak””we do not racial-profile; we just stop people based on race””can be explained in part by the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence.
2924  LEXICOGRAPHY writing or compiling of dictionaries “And when we see a critical mass of volume against a particular word, our lexicography team will start researching.” If you want to see what has been done in the way of writing of slang lexicography for 500 years, then this is the place to go.
2925  ORTHOEPY study of correct pronunciation It is true that the pedantry of scholarship has put its sovereign veto against the practice of writing words as they are spoken, even could the orthoepy ever have been settled by an unquestioned standard. The orthography is according to Jack’s orthoepy, for there are various spellings of the word.
2926  PEDAGOGY art or method of teaching Fortunately, there are ways in which to use pedagogies that you already know in order to teach the material, without compromising its integrity or authenticity. This chapter also familiarizes the reader with each method’s philosophy and principles, unique pedagogy, and practices and activities.
2927  PETROLOGY study of rocks/crust Geology: nothing about geomorphology or stratigraphy or even petrology. The mining, the petrology, the archaeology ” the artistically gifted, straight-F student, trying to live up to his brilliant, academic, domineering father.
2928  PALEOGRAPHY study of ancient writings He edited a railway magazine and worked for the International Wool Secretariat, an industry group, while resuming his education through correspondence courses for a bachelor’s degree and master’s in bibliography and paleography. He demonstrated his ability to accurately transcribe a barely-legible original manuscript of Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984” by disporting his skills in paleography, the study of ancient and antiquated writing systems.
2929  SPELELOGY study of caves In Italy we are told of “the fallen angel of French speleology”, Marcel Loubens, who winches himself into an abyss only to have his belt clip snap. In 1964, when he was 18, the high school dropout parlayed his amateur prowess in speleology into a job as a technician at the newly formed National Institute of Hydraulic Resources.
2930  ANONYMOUS a work whose writer is unknown I’ve just finished a fellowship at Princeton and for years I wrote an anonymous blog about race, which then became how I made my living, and you can read the archives here. As Adams described his encounter with the anonymous climber, and then sliding down the ice, my mouth went dry and the hairs on the back of my neck suddenly bristled.
2931  EPILOGUE  a short speech by a player at the end of a play I hate to go to hospitals because you never know when you get in one of the elevators if the guy next to you has the galloping bubonic plague. Ever since my father’s death, I had been plagued by nightmares of water and sickness.
2932  PROLOGUE  a short speech by a player at the beginning of a play The past may be prologue, but it’s with me, every day. Widget pauses before he starts, letting the tent and the tree settle into silent prologue while Poppet waits patiently.
2933  AUTOBIOGRAPHY a record of one’s life written by himself Not only did he answer my letter, but he included his response in his autobiography, sandwiched between letters to Nehru, Khrushchev, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and other luminaries. “It was better to announce my engagement by letter than to wait until I returned home, as thus I might draw the hottest fire while still in safe harbor,” she wrote in her autobiography.
2934  BIOGRAPHY the history of the life of a person (written by other) The advance publicity for Skeeter’s biography has certainly suggested that there will be shocks in store for those who believe Dumbledore to have led a blameless life. “Baba, I read Dr. Schneider’s biography in the waiting room. He was born in Michigan. Michigan! He’s American, a lot more American than you and I will ever be.”
2935  PLAGIARIST a writer who borrows words and ideas from another author Surely the similarities were inadvertent, he suggested, since Jackson was obviously a virtuous man and thus incapable of plagiarism. It also had Zero Tolerance Policies toward fighting, plagiarism, drugs, and alcohol.
2936  CAPTION the heading or short description of a newspaper article, chapter of a book It’s a picture of a frowning Will, a wilted bouquet of flowers in his hand, a bubble caption underneath it reading “Sorry.” She laughed, took a picture, texted it to Dill, and then tweeted it to her 187,564 followers with the caption Racists: not so good, with the, commas.
2937  COMEDY a humorous play, having a happy ending He had actually done stand-up comedy in clubs, Officer Speros told us, and for the first day we were less his class than his audience. Odd too is the effect produced when he uses academic jargon”bubbles at the tip of his tongue: “Topos… negative capability… vegetation imagery in Shakespearean comedy.’
2938  TRAGEDY a play with a sad or tragic end “It’s the entire purpose of the club. We come here and discuss tales of murder and tragedy.” “In the wake of the Tonist tragedy, conclave takes on a certain…resonance, don’t you think?” she heard someone say.
2939  BIBLIOPHILE one who is a great lover of books “What about all these other kids?” said Sierra, gesturing to the tables filled with the country’s top young bibliophiles. In addition to being a dedicated bibliophile, Scheide was a musician and musicologist; his library contains autographed music manuscripts by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, and Wagner.
2940  CATALOGUE a list of books in a library Artemis catalogued the events of the last few minutes. Students flock around someone short and bald, dressed in a navy blue blazer that seems right out of a catalogue.
2941  DIARY a book in which the events of each day are recorded Mr. Bolkestein, the Cabinet Minister, speaking on the Dutch broadcast from London, said that after the war a collection would be made of diaries and letters dealing with the war. Oh diary dear, I have been so indecisive about everything all week!
2942  DICTIONARY a book containing the words of a language with their definitions, in alphabetical order He learned where to place the green-faced lieutenant and the captain, and, high ground being priceless, to set the machine gunner on a book, a children’s dictionary. As dictionaries will tell you, either form is right.
2943  DIRECTORY a book of names and address Unlike Nora, I’m terrible at memorizing people’s apartment numbers, so I look at the directory in the lobby’s vestibule. He remembers the astonishment of seeing pages full of Gangulis, three columns to a page, in the Calcutta telephone directory.
2944  HARANGUE a noisy or vehement speech intended to excite passions He took a long swig on the R.C., then continued his harangue. When the last priest had left, harangued back to Athens after a mere three months, the family had hoped that Father Mike might be promoted.
2945  EPITOME a brief summary of a book They were, in effect, an epitome of his reading. Mom in a rush is not the epitome of patience.
2946  ENCYCLOPEDIA a book containing information on all branches of knowledge Once when I was seven or eight, she started bringing books to me”big old ones like the dictionary and the encyclopedia. Aureliano Segundo was so enthusiastic over the progress of his daughter that from a traveling salesman he bought a six-volume English encyclopedia with many color prints which Meme read in her spare time.
2947  OBSOLETE a word or law no longer in use The historian Garry Wills’s view that Everett’s speech was “obsolete within a half-hour of the time when it was spoken” seems to me a little over the top. The British preference, have woken, was once considered obsolete in the United States.
2948  EXPURGATE to remove the offensive portion of a book Dewey admits it, but he adds that except for an apparently somewhat expurgated version of his own conduct, Hickock’s story supports Smith’s. But even without our expurgated radio broadcast, we had learned what the authorities did not want us to know.
2949  EXTEMPORE a speech delivered without earlier preparation So by 1611 the revolution was well under way, and Donne, unlike Shakespeare and most educated contemporaries, was fully aware of it. In 1930, Haile Selassie became emperor and the shaping force of contemporary Ethiopian history.
2950  MAIDEN the first speech delivered by a person “Don’t speak,” said Loki in the form of a maiden. The painting was so detailed Pinmei could even see that between the fingers of the maiden’s outstretched hand was a thin silver needle.
2951  MANIFESTO a declaration of plans and promises put forward by a candidate for election, a political party or a sovereign Every crate must be padlocked, every transport manifest kept in a secure place. They began to manifest a curious and really rather terrifying single-mindedness.
2952  AMBIGUOUS a statement open to more than one interpretation There are other words just as ambiguous as sixteenth-century “experience’/”experiment’. His plan seemed so ambiguous and meaningless now, in front of these uniformed men.
2953  PHILISTINE one who does not care for literature and art At first glance classic style sounds naive and philistine, suited only to a world of concrete goings-on. Until then, McGregor’s film must take its place alongside a long list of cherished books which have been wantonly manhandled by philistine film-makers.
2954  RETICENT a person very reserved in speech I did not know Negro Communists as well as I wanted to, and when, on many occasions, I had sought to question them about their feelings, their work, and their actions, they had been reticent. Thus, the girls were no longer always together, and Nancy deeply felt the daytime absence of her friend, the one person with whom she need be neither brave nor reticent.
2955  VERBOSE a style full of words His account is simple and straightforward; Ovid’s extremely verbose”for instance, he takes a hundred lines to kill the sea serpent. His overly verbose answers to questions at town-hall forums and campaign debates seemed only to drive home the point that he belonged on the Senate floor.
2956  INDESCRIBABLE incapable of being described adequately Cries of human jubilation and “indescribable noise-making devices” sounded off into the night. “And I do think for myself. But the wisdom of the Führer, it fills me with an indescribable command.”
2957  SOLILOQUIZING speaking one’s thoughts aloud to oneself Do you know how long it takes to sound out a word like soliloquized? The roses were in bloom, two nightingales soliloquized in the boskage, a cuckoo was just going out of tune among the lime trees.
2958  CONNOISSEUR a person who is especially competent to pass judgments in an art, particularly one of the fine arts, or in matters of taste She is a connoisseur of pain the way others are connoisseurs of wine. They were in one of those long breaks in the sermon that the priest, a connoisseur of unbearable silences, used with frequency and to great effect.
2959  ALLITERATION commencement of adjacent words with the same letter; e.g. lovely, lively lilies Reductio ad absurdum, by this token, would be classed as a figure of thought, whereas isocolon”a sequence of phrases the same length”or alliteration would be figures of speech. Dear Diary is better, not just because of the double D alliteration action, but also because Diary reminds me of the name Darryl, so at least I feel like I’m talking to an actual someone.
2960  ANECDOTE a short, narrative story of an incident The effect of one of Leon’s anecdotes was to make his listener warm to humankind and its failings. He hinted about Cassius Clay a couple of times, and when I responded only with anecdotes about my interview with Clay, he finally asked what Clay had said of him.
2961  COUPLET two line poems Billy found the couplet so comical that he not only laughed”he shrieked. The sluggers turned as a unit to look toward the source of the noise, but Jesse hadn’t noticed and was still talking about memory, this time in rhyming couplets.
2962  DECIPHER decode/to read and understand the meaning I spent hours trying to decipher the lines in the survival manual on navigation. There were things to look for, an unspoken language of movement and form to decipher, passwords to exchange, and glances to decode.
2963  EPISTLE composition in the form of a letter As the year passed his friend seemed to grow larger in his mind, and his face looked out in a very grave and subtle way from the darkness at night. It was true: A large patch in the middle was different from the rest, although the difference was so subtle only a botanist”or Sticky”would have noticed it.
2964  ERUDITE scholarly/a person who has academic knowledge “Oh, dear me, no. I like to think of myself as an aged but extremely erudite scholar.” Handsome, erudite, and a packet of energy, the Latvian was a crowd-pleaser and the darling of the chess world.
2965  EUPHEMISM bombastic style of writing Our linguistic ancestors parlayed that incomprehension into euphemisms like passed on in which death consists of a journey to a remote location. As we have seen, the inhabitants of neighboring towns were”to borrow a modern euphemism””incentivized” to resettle there.
2966  FABLE moral stories with animal characters Only three such conditions are known to be viable; one of them, of course, is mongolism. In the twenty years between 1687 and 1707 he worked towards the construction of a viable steam engine, but in the end he failed.
2967  HYMN poem sung in praise of god We grew suspicious, for a stranger in our midst probably meant a SIM plant with a fabricated name. A few guys crashed with them, and we ended up with not much more than forty or so kids, so”I mean there could have been more”it wasn’t bad for a cocktail party.
2968  HYPERBOLE exaggerated form of speech; e.g. million dollar smile You may take this as another example of hyperbole, for in Miss Penelope Lumley’s day servants did not actually have the power to become invisible, although it certainly would be interesting if they had. It was a contest in hyperbole and carried on for no other reason.
2969  LEGEND story the authenticity of which has not been proved “I was only a praetor for about two hours. Jason, you ever hear a legend like that?” He was a legend in the school for dreaming up ways of avoiding Phys.
2970  METAPHOR when comparison is made but without using ‘like’ or ‘as’; he was a lion in the battle field Maybe Mrs. O’Toole’s maritime metaphor had given him an idea. My grandfather was literal minded, not a man who traded in metaphor or suggestion.
2971  SIMILE when similarity is shown by using words ‘like’ or ‘as’; e.g. he was like a lion in the battle field Colonel Korn was pleased with the simile and filed a mental reminder to repeat it the next time he found himself in General Peckem’s presence. Though no writer can avoid idioms altogether”they’re part of the English lexicon, just like individual words”good writers reach for fresh similes and metaphors that keep the reader’s sensory cortexes lit up.
2972  PUN use of words with two or more meanings that makes the sentence humorous Both loved dancing, motorcycles, Bob Dylan, bad puns, liberal politics, and National Public Radio. “As I tried to say earlier,” Luke remarked, “living in a haunted house plays hell with a sense of humor; I really did not intend to make a forbidden pun,” he told Theodora.
2973  RHETORIC effective speech that may not be honest Lander’s rhetoric inflamed passions; he fomented rebellion; he was too uppity to allow to run free. Indeed, his impassioned rhetoric, while doubtless sincere, was both misguided and counterproductive.
2974  SOLILOQUY speaking one’s thought aloud to oneself My hands are getting involved in the soliloquy thanks to Guillermo’s tutelage. In fact, the only times I had heard the soliloquy had been when I had melodramatically recited to myself.
2975  VERBATIM exact reproduction of same words/word for word Here was a rare interview; I shall try to record it verbatim. “First I heard about it was, she had that cancer,” he said, repeating the story he’d told dozens of reporters over the years, almost verbatim.
2976  VERBIAGE use of so many words that the real meaning gets lost Once again the bulk of the verbiage pushes in one direction while the content of the author’s argument pushes in the other. Wilkerson will not allow us to snooze through a recitation of familiar verbiage.
2977  ONOMATOPOEIA words formed from the sounds that it produces; e.g. pop, boom An even more challenging and creative way to use body percussion is to create onomatopoeia in accordance with the lyrics, mimicking or relating to the sounds presented in the rhyme. Then, with an amusement that did not try to shield its underlying seriousness, she added, “My niece goes to a school on the mainland and at age six she could spell “onomatopoeia’!”
2978  ORTHOGRAPHY good spellings Just because someone was an active participant, does that mean they get to choose or change the orthography? Tomlinson, who died on March 5th, made a lasting contribution to the world’s orthography by choosing the @ symbol for e-mail addresses.
2979  OXYMORON two words with opposite meanings used together. e.g. deafening silence On the other hand, maybe it was not an oxymoron. “In literature the word “oxymoron’ means which of the following?
2980  PARABLE moral stories The social insects, especially ants, have been sources of all kinds of parables, giving lessons in industry, interdependence, altruism, humility, frugality, patience. “What does that mean, Lili? Don’t talk to me in parables. Talk to me honestly.”
2981  PERSONIFICATION when characteristics of living things are shown in non-living things He’s the personification of a preschool dance recital. With his gentle demeanor, Gandhi seemed the very personification of nonviolence, and he insisted that the campaign be run along identical lines to that of his father’s in India.
2982  PLAGIARISM one who steal literary Subjunctives also turn up with certain prepositions and subordinators that specify hypothetical situations: Bridget was racked with anxiety lest her plagiarism become known. The two promptly accused each other of plagiarism, and the English mathematical community, which backed Newton, pulled away from the Continental mathematicians, who supported Leibniz.
2983  PLATITUDE a stale remark that becomes dull due to regular use/lacking freshness But if I’ve learned one thing in my short sad life, it is that that particular platitude is a lie. It was one of Gregory Powell’s favorite platitudes that nothing was to be gained from excitement, so when Mike Donovan came leaping down the stairs toward him, red hair matted with perspiration, Powell frowned.
2984  CACHE a place where ammunition is hidden But this year, Deydey had already made a trip to the end of the island and raided the cache. And in the mouth of the empty tomb that waited for Lord Eddard Stark, beneath his stately granite likeness, the six fugitives huddled round their little cache of bread and water and dried meat.
2985  ARSENAL a place for ammunition and weapons In mid-1775 someone in Bermuda, a British colony off the coast of North Carolina, reported that the royal arsenal at St. George’s Island, Bermuda, was full of gunpowder and had no guards around it. There were a few guns, ours included, some crossbows, and an arsenal of knives.
2986  STABLE a house of shelter for a horse “Enjoy it, Rufe. At least he’s not out setting fire to the stable or trying to drown himself.” Well, there was the horse and wagon full of empty milk bottles to be gotten back to the stables.
2987  STY a place where pigs are kept “You look like a pig in a sty.” Norman Bates looked at us from behind his steering wheel like a sleepless slaughterman at a sty of ripe pigs.
2988  AQUARIUM a tank for fishes Without a proper quorum of members, the king could then decide law as he pleased. As more join in, they seem to reach a critical mass, a quorum, and the thinking begins.
2989  CAGE a place for birds “Now they fly to their iron cages in Annuvin,” he said. In another cage a Gila monster with a skin like a beaded bag reared slowly up and clawed heavily and sluggishly at the wire.
2990  AVIARY a place where birds are kept But I’m far too wary for that by now. He fell silent, wary of the maids and youths who stood near us, bantering.
2991  APIARY a place where bees are kept Perhaps being named “black” had nothing to do with any of this; perhaps being named “black” was just someone’s name for being at the bottom, a human turned to object, object turned to pariah. Or maybe it’s low-wage work in general that has the effect of making you feel like a pariah.
2992  KENNEL a house of shelter for a dog They drove new cars, vacationed at summer houses more commodious than C.P.’s tiny frame house, and kept fine stables of horses instead of a chain-link kennel with a couple of dogs inside. The dog gave two quick, sharp barks and rushed out of the kennel.
2993  DREY a squirrel’s home Squibbles tried to steal a few fabric strips to line his drey, the nest made of leaves and twigs high in one of my forked branches. They commonly reside in a “drey,” a type of nest made of leaves.
2994  HIVE a place for bees “Well, I’d rather be naive than whatever it is you are. You only see things that are right in front of your face.” He hung his head, feeling tongue-tied and naive.
2995  LAIR the resting place of a wild animal Yet, even so, when they reached the field where the King and the Colchians were waiting, and the bulls rushed out from their lair breathing forth flames of fire, terror overcame them. She passed Taylor’s lair deep in the jungle.
2996  BURROW the dwelling place of an animal underground On top of the cliff, where the short turf was, there were myriads of puffins busy with their burrows. I burrowed down in among the dirty potatoes and held my breath.
2997  SANCTUARY a place for wild animals and birds He would have to walk in the middle of the road clutching the small cross in his hand, which was the symbol of his sanctuary. We didn’t go home, but went straight to the sanctuary, lurching up the road in a borrowed Jeep.
2998  MINT a place where money is coined And Mother was wearing a pair of shorts made out of denim and a light blue bikini top and she was smoking cigarettes called Consulate which were mint flavor. The mint tin is small enough to fit in the palm of Ma’s hand.
2999  RESORT a place frequented for reasons of pleasure or health It’s a last resort, and the only place I can think of where I might find Rod Quinn. He was not a bold man, and he used surgery only as a last and fearful resort.
3000  RESERVOIR a place where water is collected and stored She would lean into the open grate of the reservoir and pull out five stones the size of cantaloupes that stopped it up. But now, as he leaves the reservoir, he sees something odd.
