Hey Sparkle Writers. It’s Wednesday and it’s time for another #WordOfTheDay Series. Today’s word sounds so complicated but the meaning is more simple than you can imagine.
Do you want to guess what it means?
Quinquennium is pronounced /kwɪŋˈkwɛnɪəm/ and it means over a period of five years.
It’s that simple. We still don’t know why the word looks so complicated though.
Let’s look at this word in a few sentences;
My uncle promotes his staff once in a quinquennium
During the quinquennium from 1991-1995, infant mortality increased.
That’s all for today.
Make sure you use this word at the first opportunity you get.
