The Closing Word: Stolid

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: (STAHL-id)

having or revealing little emotion or sensibility; not easily aroused or

Synonyms: impassive, unemotional

From ”A stolid person can’t be moved to smile or show much sign of life, in much the same way as something solid, like a giant boulder, is immovable. Both are expressionless.”

“Great property investors are often stolid folks, giving little indication what they’re thinking under the surface. They let their offers do the talking.”
