Hi there! While browsing through Merriam Webster’s collection of Word of the Day words, I found this word that looked and sounded really weird that I had never heard of before. Since the whole purpose of Word of the Day is to expand your vocabulary, I decided to choose this word:
Noun; an alarm bell and the ringing of it / a warning signal
My example sentence is: When I heard the tocsin, I made sure to quickly exit the building in case the building was no longer safe.
Thanks for reading!
