#WordOfTheDay – You can guess what this word means

word-of-the-day-new

Hello Sparkle Writers, welcome to another #WordOfTheDay series.

Before we start we want to use this quote by Evelyn Waugh to remind you of why learning new words is so important to writers.

“One forgets words as one forgets names. One’s vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die.” 

Now back to today’s word. We think you should be able to decode the meaning from just looking at the word,

Today’s word is Eternize. /ɪˈtəːnʌɪz,iː-/.

The meaning is simple. Eternize is a verb which means to make eternal or to cause to last forever. It can also mean to immortalize.

Look at this example;

Naming the university after my dad will be a great way to eternize him. 

Now can you make your own sentences with this word?

Try it and let’s see how it goes!
