Today, I endured several lengthy meetings at work.
I survived. But just barely.
Throughout the day, though, I kept hearing the overuse of a certain word. This word is not a typical one in my vocabulary. Even on the long drive home, I heard the word used by a deejay on the radio. Everywhere I went, the word seemed to haunt me.
So, what’s the word?
It sounds so fancy doesn’t it?
Being an English major and all, I like to think I immediately knew what it meant. Given the fact that it was used out of context quite a few times today, I don’t feel so silly.
Just so we’re all clear:
noun \ˈka-vē-ˌät, -ˌat; ˈkä-vē-ˌät; ˈkā-vē-ˌat\
