This week’s words come from my Word-A-Day calendar. It’s a fun way to play the word game.
1. quondam: Many people were surprised to learn that the quondam poet and professor had since become a tax accountant.
Quondam means former or sometime.
2. festinate: “I assure you, sir,” said the ambassador, “OI am all too aware of the dangers inherent in a festinate decision.”
Festinate means hasty.
