The Closing Word: Panoply

The Closing Word: PanoplyThis 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: (PAN-uh-plee)

a complete and impressive array

From “An array or display of things is a panoply, so you can show off your panoply of spooky clown paintings, but you can also display a panoply of dance moves or talk about the panoply of flags at the parade — as long as it’s a complete or impressive display, it’s a true panoply. In ancient Greece, the word was used exclusively to talk about military costumes which were always suits of armor.”

“Visitors to the penthouse showing enjoyed a panoply of gourmet hors d’oeuvres and premium cocktails.”
