TODAY’S WORD = COPIOUS

From William

Words are what makes our life work.

We have words for everything and everybody.

So, let us give you a CHALLENGE OF WORDS!!

This will increase your vocabulary for one.

For two, you will just maybe learn something and as I have been told and shared many times before:

“A day should never go by without either a lesson learned, or a challenge ignored”.

TODAY’S WORD IS: COPIOUS.

The proper PRONUNCIATION would be:

  • {KOH-PEE-UHS}
  • COPIOUS is an ADJECTIVE

The DEFINITION would be:

  • COPIOUS is defined as being “large in quantity or number; abundant; plentiful

The ORIGIN of the word COPIOUS would be:

  • The word COPIOUS comes from Late Middle English.
  • The Etymology of COPIOUS says it derives from the old French word copieux or Latin word copiosus; from the copia meaning ‘plenty’.

The HISTORY of the word COPIOUS would be:

  • SYNONYMS for COPIOUS = Abundant, Superabundant, Plentiful, Ample, Profuse, Full, Overflowing, Bountiful, Many, Full & Generous.
  • ANTONYMS for COPIOUS = Sparse

Using the word COPIOUS in a sentence:

  • Example would be = “The crops yielded a COPIOUS harvest”.

Remember to add COPIOUS to your vocabulary and use it sometime to see who of others in your travels know the word or may find themselves stumped as to what you have said when using it.

Oh, and do not forget to continue working our previous ‘Challenge of Words’, which was WIDDERSHINS!
