One of the things that I love about reading is the new words that I’m exposed to. I’m often reading books from people with much greater vocabularies than my own. The great thing about reading digital books is that learning the definition of a new word is effortless and super convenient.
As a result, I’m going to start blogging some of these words as I learn them. These will be short little posts so that those of you who are interested can quickly learn a new word. They will be words that are useful to me and that I hope to incorporate into my ongoing vocabulary. I’ll also share what book I read the word in. Hopefully it adds a nice little mix into my normal content.
My first word is “irenic.”
noun: A part of Christian theology concerned with reconciling different denominations and sects
adjective: Aiming or aimed at peace
