Aaand the Definitions Are…

  1. Alacrity: eager and enthusiastic willingness
  2. Hackneyed: rendered trite or commonplace by frequent usage
  3. Specious: seeming true, but actually being fallacious; misleadingly attractive; plausible but false
  4. Garrulous: given to much talking, tediously chatty
  5. Trenchant: sharply perceptive; keen; penetrating
  6. Obfuscate: to deliberately obscure; to make confusing

Clearly, I need to start studying the dictionary and quit relying on Google to do the work for me 🙂

    See! I missed the dictionary definition for 2 of them and only got the contextual usage. sigh…

    That's still better than how I did. I can't say I'd even heard the word trenchant before, lol.

  • Kate Larkindale says:

    Oh good! Was right on all of them, although I don't think I could have explained the meaning of any of them so precisely.

  • Deana says:

    Uhh, me too Juliana:)

    Holy crap, I'm stupid.

    I didn't even know those words existed let alone know how to define them. Crud. I need to yank out a dictionary now and again and spruce up my vocabulary.
