The Closing Word: Taciturn

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: (TASS-ih-turn)

habitually reserved and uncommunicative

From “Having its origin in the Latin tacitus, “silent,” taciturn came to be used in mid-18th-century English in the sense “habitually silent.” Taciturnity is often considered a negative trait, as it suggests someone uncommunicative and too quiet.”

“Woe is the taciturn agent, for the number one reason clients cite dissatisfaction with the progress of their transaction is a lack of communication.”
