The Closing Word: Locution

The Closing Word: BedraggleThis 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: (low-CUE-shun)

a word or phrase that particular people use in particular situations

From “A person’s style of speech — certain words or phrases she tends to use — is her locution, especially if it’s specific to a particular place or group of people, like teenagers or French Canadians. You can also use the noun locution when you’re talking about the way a person pronounces words. If someone tends to “beat around the bush,” or tell a story in a roundabout way, you can call that circumlocution.”

“With new buyers it’s important to pay attention to your locution when it comes to common real estate terms. Keep their level of experience in mind.”
