Word of the Day

Devolve (transitive verb) — to delegate something to a successor in power; to pass something on to the next person in succession; (intransitive verb) — to be passed on to the successor; to be conferred upon the next person; to degenerate through evolution to a lesser state; to degenerate through change, usually slowly (from the Middle English and Latin meaning "to roll down")

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Godric Taiman devolves from a promising young man with energy and ideas into a hard, bitter person who follows the wishes of an evil sorceress.

See what you can come up with with your new vocabulary word and share it with us in the comment field. There's no judging here, and all of us readers and writers learn something together.

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
