Good Morning, Class. Our vocabulary word for the day is “trill.” By the end of this paragraph you should be able to give the origin of the word; the definition; it’s classification as a part of speech; plus the new usage of the term. And finally, as your higher order thinking skill, you must be able to use the word in a sentence.
The origin of the word lies in a rap song. It is a hybrid or combination of the words “truth” and “real.” Wouldn’t that be “treal?” Perhaps it is the accent. Besides what is a hybrid word? Isn’t that just a word you made up? The word can be used as a noun or an adjective. It is used both as a proper noun and to describe the skills and attributes of the proper noun. It cannot be used as an adverb, because that would be trilly. That is a new hybrid word for tried, but silly.
The new usage of the term is that it is the adopted nickname of Kenny Hill. Rather than Kenny Football, the Texas A&M quarterback has chosen Kenny Trill. Or Kenny Truth and Real. Let’s hope so.
And for your higher order thinking skill our sentence is: Kenny Trill will lead his team to BTHO Lamar.
I hope you paid special attention to today’s lesson. It could be on the test!
