Word of the Week


Meaning complete disorder and confusion.

Example of using it in a sentence "The local roadworks often cause chaos to my appointments timetable."

This word has its roots in both Greek, Latin and Old French. All referring to Greek mythology where monsters came out a gaping big chasm and breaking up the world as the Greeks knew it. Nowadays, scientists use it for physic to explain the properties of a complex system whose behaviour is unpredictable.

Spelling tip: Chaos causes chaos with our spelling because we have a ch which we normal pronounce as ‘ch’ as in Church. Here we have ‘ch’ making a kicking K sound with the ‘a’ making a ‘kay’ sound. Remember that ‘kay’ is made with ch + a and add the ‘o’ and the ‘s’ on the end.

ch + a + o + s

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