A Word A Week


If you exchange a coin, you both will have one coin. But if you exchange a thought, you both will have two thoughts!!

So why don’t we exchange some words and gain the profit?? ๐Ÿ™‚

This week’s word is –

Augur

As a noun it means a soothsayer, a person who prophesies future events; prophet;

An augur was a Roman official with the job of predicting the future and advising on public policy.

So as a verb, auguring, augurs, augured means to fortell, to observe and interpret signd and omens.

There is a related phrase, ‘Augur well’, which means to predict good things about the future. ๐Ÿ™‚

I augur well for someย likes and commentsย on my blog! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t confuse augur with auger which means a drilling device!
