I’m certain this is very obvious, English is not my first language. I’ve been reading and speaking English from a young age and that has led me to writing in English. Now recently I have been taking my language usage a little more seriously and I’m currently trying to broaden my English vocabulary.
Part of this is not only learning new words but also learn to use the large amount of words I already know.
I figured I can share this experience with you and who know perhaps you can pick up a few new words as well.
So here it is, the word of the day.
Synonyms: handy, clever, able, expert.
The history of this word is really fascinating because it comes from the Latin word adeptos which as used to describe an alchemist who had achieved the impossible of turning a base metal into gold.
Noun Adept: a skilled person or expert.
Adjective Adept: skilled, dexterous.
Example: He was adept at creating characters, so they seemed to walk off the page.
