That Word is the segment on my blog where I post new words that I discover newly or have jumped out at me once again. If you love finding new words this post is for you. If you're a writer looking for different words to describe some this post may also be for you.
Where I discovered It
This is another word that I discovered in a list on the notes on my phone. I think I have a vague idea of what it means.
- an act of admonishing
- counsel, advice or caution
- a gentle reproof
- a warning or reproof given by an ecclesiastical authority
An Example Sentence
The admonition had not been harsh but still it hurt to have one's idea shot down.
Admonition is a familiar word that I did have a fair idea of what it meant. It's also one of those words that can be easily broken into syllables to learn which was just a thought I had. I like how the flow from ad to mon. It's not a smooth flow between the two but it isn't jarring either. I think it is this part that aids to being able to hear how the word sounds better. From that part it flows nicely to the rest of the word.
