Becoming an Expert: Words I Learned

4:58 PM

Today I am learning about the Red Guards of China's Cultural Revolution by reading articles from Encarta and Wikipedia. While the writing of the article isn't exactly that interesting itself (typical reference writing), the subject is interesting enough to me that the way it's written doesn't matter that much. Here's a word I find popping up a lot in anything related to the Cultural Revolution that I didn't know before:

re·ac·tion·ar·y /riˈækʃəˌnɛri/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[ree-ak-shuh-ner-ee] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation adjective, noun, plural -ar·ies.
–adjective
1.
of, pertaining to, marked by, or favoring reaction, esp. extreme conservatism or rightism in politics; opposing political or social change. –noun
2.
a reactionary person.

But reactionaries don't have to be related to the Cultural Revolution.

    I learned the words trite and saccharin from a book I forget the name of. And there are some other words that I forget -- I've got a bad memory.
