Word of the Week


Mrs Steele’s Word of the Week for this week is ‘Evasive’. The Oxford Dictionary has given the following definitions for this word:

1. Tending to avoid commitment or self-revelation, especially by responding only indirectly.
e.g. At Westminster, a series of written questions given to the politician has produced singularly evasive answers.

2. Directed towards avoidance or escape.
e.g. Some cars were forced to take evasive action and swerve.

Don’t be ‘EVASIVE’ about increasing your vocabulary. We can all help by encouraging each other to use the Word of the Week and to spot it in the world around us.
