The Wednesday Word - lucubrate

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 12 June 2013

Today’s word is lucubrate. It means to work, write, or study with great effort, especially at night. It comes from a Latin word which means to work by artificial light. From this definition it appears that all of us a doing a fair bit of lucubrating for a large part of our day and night.

Here is my quote for it:

“His iPhone had just enough power and light to shine onto his textbook and allow him to lucubrate late into the night – he did not want to fail his final school exam.”

Feel free to let me know if you ever come across a word you think may be appropriate for this part of my blog.
