The Closing Word: Retinue

The Closing Word: RetinueThis 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: (RET-ih-noo)

the group following and attending to some important person

From “A retinue is a group of people that accompany an important person. If you’re a king or queen, you can think of a retinue as your royal crew or posse. Retinue shares a root with retain. This fact can help you remember the word. If you hire someone to help you out while you travel, you are retaining their services.”

“When sellers hire me, they can also rely on my retinue of cleaners, painters, stagers, inspectors, and title professionals.”
