Word of the Week
Meaning – something given as an honour, without the usual efforts to require it or the functions that go with it.
Example of using it in a sentence: Some universities give celebrities Honorary Doctorates, which means a degree without the celebrity actually studying or sitting the exams for it.
Spelling Tip – the root word is from the Latin for honour but spelt “honor”, which is why there is no ‘u’ in it. The suffix ‘ary’ means to belong to or connected with something or somewhere special.
hon + or + ary
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.
