Welcome to the first Word Wise post of the summer! Every day throughout the summer, I will be posting a word from Merriam Webster on my blog along with its matching definition. Then, unlike last summer, I’ll create a sentence of my own so that you can get a better understanding of the new word. By the end of the summer, you’ll be able to add a total of 81 new words to your vocabulary: all of which can be found here.
To start the summer off, here is today’s word:
Adjective; appearing ready to collapse; rickety
My example sentence: During Technology Education, I constructed a ramshackle bridge, and so my bridge was not able to sustain the weight of a small wood block.
Thank you for reading!
