In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".

Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
