Kindle Vocabulary Builder #2


Hello everyone,

One of the impressive features of a Kindle is the Vocabulary Builder, which is a perfect tool for people like me who enjoy learning new words and vocabulary!

It allows you to store all of the words that have looked up the definition for while reading. They automatically appear there once highlighted, and you can review, study, and master the words at a later date.

Here are some more of the words the I have added to the Vocabulary Builder, definitions from Oxford Dictionaries

Word: Patina
Definition: A green or brown film on the surface of bronze or similar metals, produced by oxidation over a long period.
Also: The impression or appearance of something.

Word: Forfend
Definition: Prevent something evil or unpleasant
Also: Protect something by precautionary measures.

Word: Maven
Definition: An expert or connoisseur.

Word: Acolyte
Definition: A person assisting a priest in a religious service or procession.

Word: Lithe
Definition: Thin, supple, and graceful (especially of a person’s figure).

Word: Ululate
Definition: To howl or wail as an expression of strong emotion, especially grief.

Word: Abstemious
Definition: Indulging only very moderately in something, such as food or drink.

Word: Cabal
Definition: A secret political clique or faction.

Have you come across these words? Are any them new to you? Do let me know in the comments!

Happy reading 🙂
