In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘DRAFT’ – (The word ‘draft’ can be a noun and a verb) Writing or planning something you know you will change to make it better is called a ‘draft’. It is a way of getting your ideas right.

Here are some ways you could use the word:

“The writer had completed their first draft of their new novel.” (noun)

“The footballer had drafted their transfer request to give to their manager.” (verb)

Wondrous New Words: ‘propitiate’ (verb) proh-PISH-ee-ayt – to try and make someone more pleased or less angry.

Quote of the Week: ‘If man does not treat the oceans and the rainforests with respect, man will become extinct’ – Peter Benchley, author of ‘Jaws’
