The Closing Word: Stalwart

The Closing Word: StalwartThis 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: (STALL-wert)

1. having rugged physical strength; inured to fatigue or hardships
2. used especially of persons; dependable

a person who is loyal to their allegiance (especially in times of revolt)

From ”To be stalwart is to be loyal, no matter what, like your friend who remains a devoted fan of an actor she’s admired since childhood, even if that was the last time the guy made a decent movie.”

“We’re all thankful for those stalwart clients who stand by us even when a house is on the market longer than they may have anticipated.”
