Word: Recuperate

“Re-CUPER-ate” should remind you of “SUPER”. Yes! Imagine yourself suffering from some illness when suddenly, after having a miracle drug, you start feeling super! You have thus recuperated from the illness (or a loss a business – whichever may be the case)! Yaay!

Word: Abortive

“Abortive” is related to the word “Abortion” that indicates the end of pregnancy before the birth of a child. Thus, an “abortive” attempt is any attempt that does not bear the desired results. Remember thus.

Word: Gale

The word “Gale” should remind you of Chris Gayle, the Jamaican Cricketer who plays international cricket for the West Indies and is known for his aggressive style of batting, often compared to a storm.
