Wednesday's (April 3) Word

Today's vocabulary word is:

Laconic (adjective)
Pronounced: la-kon-ik, with accent on second syllable
Definition: terse; using few words; concise.

This is a good word to describe the silent cowboy or the detective who thinks a lot but says very little.

Can you use "laconic" in a sentence?

Last week's word was keel-haul.
"The cruel captain from Mutiny on the Bounty used to keel-haul his sailors when they disrespected him. I wonder if some of the men drowned before they could be hauled back up from the underside of the ship."
