The Closing Word: Strident

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: (STRY-dent)

1. Unpleasantly loud and harsh.
2. Conspicuously and offensively loud; given to vehement outcry.

“Real negotiations begin when the strident complaints are set aside.”

Strident folks tend to alienate those with opposing opinions. Leave them at home when you’re looking for a compromise.”
