The Closing Word: Contiguity

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: (kahn-ti-GYOO-ih-tee)


1. the attribute of being so near as to be touching

2. the sequential occurrence or proximity of stimulus and response, causing their association in the mind

From Vocabulary: ”Contiguity shares a root with the more common contiguous, the Latin contingere, which means “to touch upon.”

“The contiguity of the lodge’s lot with a national park was an attractive selling point, as no further development would be permitted.”
