The Closing Word: Envisage

The Closing Word: EnvisageThis 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: (en-VIZ-ij)

form a mental image of something that is not present or that is not the case

From “The words envisage and envision share the same Latin root meaning to see. Both words are very similar in meaning but do have slight shades of difference. If you envision something happening, you can see it happening in your mind. I’m sure you can envision yourself graduating from high school! If you envisage something, you can imagine it, but not necessarily see it. You can envisage world peace, but it may be harder to envision it.”

“While it may be easy for first-time homeowners to imagine living in their new home, it might be more difficult for them to envisage how building wealth in real estate will help them when they retire.”
