The Closing Word: Celerity


The Closing Word: CelerityThis 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:

celerity

Pronounced: (suh-LAIR-uh-tee)

Noun:
a rate that is rapid

From Vocabulary.com: “While it looks a lot like celery, celerity means something that vegetables are not — fast moving. When you see the word celerity, think accelerate, like a car when you step on the gas. Both words share the Latin root celer which means swift.”

Example:
“No matter how hot the market, touring homes with celerity is a bad idea. Investing in a home requires a somewhat more methodical approach.”
