Word of the Day
Today’s Word of the Day is antihero.
Antihero is a noun meaning “a protagonist who lacks conventional heroic qualities such as idealism, courage, or morality. These individuals often possess dark personality traits such as disagreeableness, dishonesty, and aggressiveness.”
Example: Macbeth is an antihero in that he is definitely the main character in the play, but as the play goes on, he becomes more and more evil and destructive.
Use this word in class today—especially in English class—and you will be a vocabulary hero in your teacher’s eyes. And don't forget to play the Word of the Day game by writing a sentence with this word and placing it in the box in Room 105.
