Three Hundred

My vocabulary is not the most extensive, but I try to learn new words on a regular basis. And I succeed. I do not always succeed in retaining my new-found knowledge, though. I struggled to recall the meaning of “obeisance” (pronounced oh-bey-suh ns) a couple of days ago; my best ‘recollection’ of the meaning of the word was ‘deferential attitude.’ That’s relatively close, but not close enough. The word is a noun referring to a gesture or body movement expressing deep respect or deferential courtesy. I’m ruminating on how to remember what I learn.
