Word Wise- June 12, 2016

Word of the Day2

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!
