Word of the Week

humour (noun and verb)

Meaning – when we use it as a noun we mean something that has the quality of being funny. However, when we use it as a verb, it has a far darker meaning because you are hoping to keep somebody ‘happy’ regardless of how unreasonable they are being.

Example of using it in a sentence: “John has a great sense of humour, he can make a joke out of anything.

Example of using it in a sentence: “I am always having to humour them to avoid an agreement, they can get quite nasty if they don’t get their own way.

Spelling Tip –

hu + m + our

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.
