Word of the Day

The better vocabulary we have, the easier we can describe our thoughts in a particular language. Moreover a good vocabulary is also helpful in entrance exams like SSC, Bank, CAT, IAS etc.  Vocabulary can’t be learnt or enriched overnight. You have to make a conscious and determined effort to improve. Learn a new word (or set of words)  every day and revise it (them)  frequently. Learn a new word each day with our Word of the Day section. In this section a new word is added daily to the list along with its meaning, pronunciation, usage, synonyms and antonyms.
