The Closing Word: Prowess

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: (PROW-ess)

1. a superior skill that you can learn by study and practice and observation
2. bravery in battle

From “Prowess is from Middle English, from Old French proeceproesse, from prou, prud“good, capable, brave.” The related English word proud has the now obsolete meaning of brave.”

“My prowess negotiating on behalf of buyers is well-known in this market, and I routinely save my clients thousands.”
