The Closing Word: Vernal

The Closing Word: VernalThis 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: (VUHR-null)

1. suggestive of youth; vigorous and fresh
2. of or characteristic of or occurring in spring

From “The word vernal entered English in the sixteenth century, tracing all the way back to the Latin word ver, meaning spring. Use the adjective vernal to describe something that occurs in springtime or is related to springtime. The word vernal can also be used more broadly to describe something youthful or fresh — springlike.”

“What the vernal agent may lack in experience they often supplement with energy and enthusiasm.”
