The Closing Word: Commodious

The Closing Word: CommodiousThis 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: (cuh-MO-dee-us)

large and roomy

From “Yes, you see the word, commode — i.e. toilet — in commodious. Both words once had the meaning of convenience attached to them from their Latin roots. Indoor plumbing is in fact convenient when you compare it with the alternative as is having room to spare. But that meaning was left behind years ago.”

“The mansion’s commodious garage had spaces for eight cars.”
