I recently started studying to take the GRE (the grown-up equivalent of the SATs) so I can begin the application process for grad school. As part of my study materials I have a huge deck of vocabulary words I'm supposed to learn. I've decided that you all could stand to enhance your vocabularies as well, so around these parts Wednesdays will now be known as New Word Wednesday.
I chose today's word from the deck because it surprised me so much. Not only did I have no idea what it meant, but I had no idea it was even a word separate from the religion--and I'll bet you didn't either.
The word is CATHOLIC. It's an adjective meaning "universal; broad and comprehensive". ex. sentence: "Hot tea with honey is a catholic remedy for a sore throat." Synonyms: extensive, general
Be honest, did you know this already?
