Word of the Week: interpellate

Dictionary --Word of the Week

Good morning, Word Nerds! Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was infrangible. The father-in-law chimed in with his definition that it means “unbreakable or indivisible.” He also noted that it was a much shorter definition than last week’s! 🙂

Merriam-Webster Online says that infrangible means:

  1. not capable of being broken or separated into parts

  2. not to be infringed or violated

Can I just have the vocabulary my father-in-law has forgotten????

This week’s WOW is interpellate. Here are my guesses for interpellate:

interpellate (in-tər-ˈpe-ˌlāt, in-ˈtər-pə-ˌlāt) 1. legal matters that are between appellate courts 2. the space between pellets 3. interstellar appellate courts 4. the mental process in which a person connects two distinctly different ideas and synthesizes them into a new idea

What’s your guess for interpellate? Submit a comment below this post! Thank you for “playing.”
