Good morning folks,
I must admit I’m betraying my bombastic title publishing this post today: today’s word is actually yesterday’s A.W.A.D. selection, so it’s me who’s not taking action timely … Sorry, folks!
Well, coming to the point, this week A.Word.A.Day. aims at refining our ‘verb-ability‘ (as they say) with five verbs that will surely add grace and elegance to our speech. Today the verb combines comfort with entrenchment, in my mind it even suggests the idea of ‘home’ (comfort) as a safe shelter (trench) … after all, many hide away in their homes to escape from the rest of the world!
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome …
1. To settle firmly and comfortably.
2. To hide securely.
