The Wednesday Word - apocopate

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 4 September 2013

Today’s word is apocopate, which is when you omit the final sound or sounds of a word. It is something you probably don’t think you do much, but in fact we do it all the time.

Here is my quote for it:

“Reading his lad’s mag while cooking the barbie gave him street cred, but none more so than apocopating in front of his fam.”

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