    Word of the Day - A new adjective

    Learning of new word and using it in sentences will help us to grow as writers for which we need to be vivid readers as well. For if we won't read we won't come across new words and we won't try to make new sentences from it.

    Today I came across a new word, this word wasn't so familiar to me. If you have come across this word before, can we try to make a sentence out of this word?

    The word is "Tantamount", lets put on our thinking hat and try to make simple sentences out this word.

    Tantamount is an adjective, it is a synonym to equivalent, significant, similar etc.

    For e.g: The resignations were tantamount to an admission of guilt.

    Knowledgeable members can correct me if I am wrong and add more information to this.

    We would love to learn more.
