SAT Words of the Week


Safura Tanveer, Staff Writer

ARCHAIC ~ outdated; no longer in use. “The expression ‘groovy’ is already archaic.”
ASSENT ~ to agree to. “A treaty signed by the President is not valid until the Senate assents to its prescribed terms.”
ASSUAGE ~ to soothe or relieve. “Nothing could assuage the little boy’s grief after his pet iguana ran away.”
AUSPICIOUS ~ favorable; propitious. “The merger of the two companies was an auspicious occasion.”
AUTHENTIC ~ genuine, real. “An authentic Mark McGwire rookie card is probably worth a lot of money.”
