I've been thinking of adding a topic like this for a while now. Basically, each day you can post up to three uncommon words, and define them here, this is just for a little fun, and to increase everyones vocabulary.

Just for the young members....

Adjective- A describing word
Verb- An action word
Noun- Person, Place, or thing

Here's my three words for today.

Arid- Extremely dry or deathly boring (adjective)

Iridescent- Showing many colors (adjective)

Raze- To tear down, demolish (verb)
