The Closing Word: Succor

The Closing Word: SuccorThis 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: (SUCK-er)

assistance in time of difficulty

help in a difficult situation

From “In archaic times, succor meant a reinforcement of troops during a hard battle. These days though, those reinforcements are a bit more figurative. Succor is a helping hand in a time of need, relief when the going gets tough.”

“Displaced from their apartment by the fire, the family sought succor from the Red Cross.”
