The Closing Word: Confrere

The Closing Word: ScabrousThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you an example of how to use it.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (CON-frair)

a person who is member of one’s class or profession ”Think of the noun confrere as a very French sounding way to say “colleague.” In fact, frere means “brother” in French, so a confrere is like someone who’s a part of your professional brotherhood. Except these days that brotherhood has been expanded to include all of the working women of the world.”

“Once a month, all of the agents in the city get together to catch up with their confreres.”
