Lesson 22 Robust Vocabulary
Transcript of Lesson 22 Robust Vocabulary
Robust Vocabulary acquired assumed serious attempt extremely admit barely absurd hilarious witty If you own or buy something, you have acquired it. If you assumed something, you believed something without thinking about it. If something is absurd, it is crazy or silly. If you attempt to do something, you try to do it.

When you admit something, you agree that it is true even though you might not want to. When you can barely do something, you almost can't do it at all. When you think something is hilarious, you think it is very, very funny. If you are witty, you say things in a clever and funny way. The End If the phrase is serious, say "Now, that's serious." If it sounds hilarious, laugh.
