Kindle Vocabulary Builder #3

My Writing Week (2)
Hello everyone,

One of the neat applications 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 – some of them are very random! Definitions from Oxford Dictionaries

Word: Alacrity
Definition: Brisk and cheerful readiness

Word: Halter
Definition: A strap or rope placed around the head of a horse or other animal, used for leading or tethering it.

Word: Retinue
Definition: A group of advisors, assistants, or others accompanying an important person.

Word: Cittern
Definition: A stringed instrument similar to a lute, with a flattened back and wire strings, used in 16th and 17th century Europe.

Word: Bulgur
Definition: A cereal food made from whole wheat partially boiled then dried, eaten especially in Turkey.

Word: Doula
Definition: A woman giving support, help, and advice to another woman during pregnancy and after the birth.

Word: Aqueous
Definition: Containing or resembling water.

Word: Impel
Definition: To drive, force, or urge someone to do something.

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

Happy reading 🙂
