Word-A-Week Vocabulary Vlog #32: Privation

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

The beauty of the English language is it has a word for just about anything. In fact, if you think about it, the English language was the original app. But imagine, if you will, an app with a complete manual that spans over 21,000 pages. That might freak you out a bit. But don’t be afraid–sometimes you just need to it nice and slow, one thing at a time. Or in this case, one word at a time. And the man who can ease you into the use of this massive language app is Aaron Poole. He reads those 21,000 pages so you don’t have to. (Well, to be more accurate, he sort of just skims them.) Anyway, it’s time for him to bring you another word! One picked out especially for you! (Monogramming costs extra.) Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you’re carving expletives into the arse of a sleeping Ent! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We urge you to join Aaron as he spelunks the caves of ignorance wearing the hardhat of knowledge, in order to seek the advice of the bat-eating centipede…that is Language.
