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.

Word: Consummate

Imagine an expert consumer who is highly skilled at shopping and getting good deals. A consummate consumer! You can also remember the root words to remember. Both “consummate” and “summit” have the root word “summus” that is Latin for “summit” – the highest point. Imagine a consummate climber who has reached the summit of Mount Everest!

Word: Gainsay

“Gainsay” is a tricky word to remember. Just think about some one who has made huge gains in a business. But when others ask her whether she actually made those gains, she denies flatly! Remember thus!
