This 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: (bly-th)

1. carefree and happy and lighthearted
2. lacking or showing a lack of due concern

From “The adjective blithe used to mean happy and carefree, but over time it has also come to describe someone who isn’t paying attention the way they should.”

“With blithe disregard for my advice, the buyer waived the home inspection and only discovered serious maintenance issues when it was too late.”
