Vocabulary Through GIFs Part 4!!!!

Today I am sick and experiencing great Lassitude (remember what this means my astute friends?) but the GRE prep train does not coddle the weak. On with vocabulary we must go!

1) Anomaly (n): a deviation from the common rule, a person who is abnormal, an incongruent condition.

The reason the ARC team called the shiny portals anomalies is because these portals were completely incongruent with physics as we know it.

Of course the real anomaly of the series is that Abby didn’t immediate fall for Connor. I mean just look at this adorable puppy.

image

2) Assuage (v): make milder, less severe. To alleviate or relieve.

Some pain will never be assuaged, like the ending of Merlin for instance.

image

I will never forget. I will never forgive.

3) Equivocate (v): to speak in such a way that the words could have multiple meanings. Unclear, ambiguous. Often used to deceive.

The world of Storybrook would be a lot safer if that darn blind prophetess would stop equivocating. Her words always have multiple meanings.

image

All of that would have gone so much better if she just said “Rumple, trying to stop a prophecy will fail so chilax.” But noooo.

4) Erudite (adj): characterized by great knowledge, learned or scholarly.

Luckily for Harry and Ron, Harmione was erudite as Ravenclaw or the boys would never have passed a single class—not to mention died right off the bat.

I know, Hermione, but you picked them.

5) Fervid (adj): heated, or vehement of spirit. Ardent, intense, emotional.

Aragon’s fervid speech that inspired the armies and a thousand memes.

image

6) Esoteric (adj): understood by or meant for a select few with special knowledge.

Whether he means to or not, Reid’s jokes are always esoteric.

image

Answer in case you’re curious: Two. One to change the lightbulb, and one to observe how it symbolizes an incandescent beacon of subjectivity in a  netherworld of cosmic nothingness.”

image

7) Placate (adj): to appease or pacify, especially by concession

Sometimes I just know Moffat puts in scenes to placate the fangirls. Scenes like…

image

Of course…he should do that to make up for this:

image

8) Audacious (adj): extremely bold or daring. Fearless, unrestrained, or uninhibited.

After being continually ignored by Lydia, it was an audacious move for Stiles to ask her to dance.

image

But hey…when it works it works.

image

9) Capricious (adj): subject to or led by a sudden notion. Unpredictable, erratic.

What is the only thing worse than being surrounded by villains and never knowing who you can trust? When your side kick is a capricious serum induced super hero too!
image

image

10) Loquacious (adj): tending to speak too freely or too much.

Andy has the tendency to be a bit loquacious…

image

image

image

…but that is what we love about him.

And that is it for today folks! More to come…probably!

call-me-pixie said: I was reading this book "Feed" and I was just frustrated. The premise was great but it just wasn't working. Maybe I'll try again one day

By Mira Grant? OH no! You must keep reading! That is one of my favorite books of all time and it just gets better and better until you are sobbing your eyes out!

bevsi:

Less “your sexuality/body/race/gender, etc shouldn’t matter” and more “your sexuality/body/race/gender should always be respected”
Don’t equate refusing to acknowledge differences to respecting them
