Use Fancy Words: Opine
Fancy word Everygirls should know: opine
Why we chose this fancy word: Ah, the elusive and uncelebrated opine.
This fancy word definitely conjures up the memory of one of those SAT words that, while in those cramming hours the night before the test, elicits a head-banging, soul-searching, nail-biting inducement of consignment to oblivion, never to be remembered, jettisoned for the whole of time to an unbounded stack of white note cards.
Good news, Everygirls: today, we’re going to change that “never to be remembered” to a “never to be forgotten.” We opine you will enjoy the process.
Definition: opine (verb) pronunciation: o-pine
- To state as one’s opinion. Comment, suggest, remark.
Use this word in a sentence: “Delicious strudel!” Hans opined.
