The Closing Word: Adventitious

The Closing Word: Adventitious

Image of Closing Word LogoThis 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: (AD-ven-TISH-us)

1. associated by chance and not an integral part
2. coming from outside: not inherent or native
3. appearing in an unusual or abnormal place.

From “Adventitious is a word you use to talk about things that “just kind of happen,” not because you are trying to do them, but because they just come along.”

“When my clients got lost on their way to my office, the adventitious detour introduced them to a neighborhood where they later purchased a home.”
