Hi, my friends! In August we started playing The Wheel Of Fortune again and here are the words we guessed.
SQUEAMISH (adj) defines a person easily made to feel sick, faint, or disgusted, especially by unpleasant images or sensations.
Example: Lila is really squeamish about cats and she never visits my house just because I have one.
INDEFATIGABLE (adj) defines a person who never gives up even though he/she is tired of many failures.
Example: After several failures, misunderstanding and Danny's very harsh comments, Luci is still very indefatigable English student.
FREELANCER (noun) It defines a self-employed person who is hired to work for different companies on particular assignments.
Example: The article was written by a freelancer.
Synonym: A NON-STAFF MEMBER.
PRECONCEIVED (adj) defines an idea or opinion formed too early without having enough knowledge.
Example: The same set of facts can be tailored to fit any preconceived belief.
SUBTERFUGE (noun) means the way used in order to achieve one's goal by deceit.
Example: He had to use subterfuge and bluff on many occasions.
UNSCRUPULOUS (adj) means dishonest or unfair. I would add that an unscrupulous person is one without any moral principles, one who can easily run over others to reach his goals.
Example: Nowadays doctors are becoming unscrupulous and tend to make more money instead of treating patients honestly.
Synonyms: UNPRINCIPLED, DISHONEST.
INSURMOUNTABLE (adj) means too great to be overcome.
Example: I refuse to believe that any of the problems mentioned here today are insurmountable.
CLAIRVOYANCE (noun). it is ability of some people to predict or forecast some evens. According to the Oxford dictionary it is the supposed faculty of perceiving things or events in the future or beyond normal sensory contact.
Example: He is versed in occult science, in magic and in clairvoyance.
A person who guessed a word had to explain it and to give an example. So, I saved your explanations and add/ correct some.
Now, I propose you to use these words in your short stories or poems if you feel like that. Sure, you can ask your questions if the meaning of some word is not clear enough.
Please, leave the links or post your stories here.
I also hope you will join our game!
