Silver’s Word of the Week or Month… PUGILISTIC
I have been toying with this idea for a while now. I decided that it would be fun to offer a different word each week (or month) with its meaning and use it in a sentence. It will be fun to see if we can incorporate some of these words into our everyday life!
Behold the birth of Silver’s Word of the Week… or Month, whatever the case may be!
For my first week, the word I heard on television (Yes, believe it or not) was:
The root word is pugilist [pyoo-juh-list].
Dictionary.com says a pugilist is someone who fights with their fists, like a boxer. It usually refers to a professional. In this context, the word is a noun.
If someone is pugilistic that suggests to me that the person has a “fighting” nature. In this context, pugilistic is an adjective.
To use the word in a sentence:
Donald Trump and his pugilistic attitude seem to have a wide appeal to many voters this campaign season.
**This is not a political dissertation. The sentence is only used for demonstration purposes.**
