Word of the Week

Hierarchy (noun)

Meaning – a system in which members of an organization or society are ranked according to relative status or authority.

Example of using it in a sentence: "Learning to read is high in the hierarchy of education, once you can read you can access all other education.”

Synonyms: pecking order, ranking, order

Spelling Tip – to get the ‘i’ and the ‘e’ the right way around remember ‘hi’ and ‘er’. Imagine a lofty boss walking through the company and going to speak to the doorman and saying ‘Hi’ and then can’t remember the doorman’s name.

hi + er + arch + y

Use the word as many times throughout the week as you can. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
