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: (COSS-it)

treat with excessive indulgence

From “To cosset is to pamper or spoil. Your mom might cosset her beloved lap dog, feeding him homemade meals and singing him to sleep. Your temptation might be to cosset small children or elderly relatives, pampering them and shielding them from difficulty.”

“Excellent service doesn’t require you cosset your clients. Sometimes unpleasant truths must be confronted and firm boundaries established.”
