Penchant: Word of the Day

Penchant, n.

A strong inclination, taste, or liking for something: a penchant for outdoor sports.

Bertha was yet another “street person” with a penchant for agressive pan-handling.

Alternate usage:

“Bic… Biro… Rollerball! Bic… Biro… Rollerball! Bic… Biro… Rollerball! ”

“Erm, what are you doing?”

“A penchant.”

How will you use penchant in a sentence today?

  1. Bertha has perhaps more to commend her enterprise to find sustenance than the capitalist with his penchant for money, and anyone who is ambitious enough to have a penchant to succeed in reaching their goals.
