#WordOfTheDay – Ever heard of Quinquennium?


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.
