Word of the Week: Febrile

Hey! I actually did another one of these within a week of each other. Cheers for consistency for two weeks!

From the Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day:

Febrile \FEB-ryle\ or \FEEB-ryle\ adjective : marked or caused by fever (feverish). Can also be used in an emotional context. Originated in medicine, first used in the 17th century.

An example from my writing: “A jarring juxtaposition to the febrile chaos just moments before.”

How can you use this word in the next week? Can you see yourself using it?



I'd love to hear from you!
