Here are ten words beginning with the letter “e” that are quite useful (especially if you are taking the PSAT in October).
I’m looking for opportunities to use all these words except for excruciating. I eliminated it from my vocabulary when I read Lee Strobel’s The Case for Easter several years ago, and learned that excrutiate means “out of the cross.” I have experienced pain before but I’m sure it wasn’t “out of the cross” pain. Following are the definitions in case you need a refresher.
1. to wipe out
2. worn-out; barren
3. to weaken
4. inferior substitute
5. to avoid
6. pertaining to summer
7. the origin and development of words
8. science of improving the human race
9. unbearably painful
