Daffy's Logolept Page and Word a Day Blog

A blog to help others improve their vocabularies. I feature several words every day. The words are eclectic mix of words gathered over many years. I also feature sentence examples, and I try to write in an informal friendly style.

Hebetate

Hello again! Today's word is Hebetate: to grow dull and stupid.

Now this is my idea of a utilitarian word! Think of all the times you could use this wonderful zinger!
My sentence example "The Smiths had planned for their son , Barry, to go to college and become a doctor, but instead, all he did after dropping out of high school, was to sit in his room with earphones on and hebitate."

See ya next time!
