Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day
Friday, August 18th alleviate Easy to Bear Word of the Day:
Imagine a burdensome weight being lifted: it would make everything easier, and that's the idea behind alleviate. Its relatives (such as lever and levity) all have to do with the idea of lightness, as does their common ancestor: Latin levis, which is distantly related to the English adjective"light."
