#WOTD: Missive

Hello hey hi, fellas! Let’s talk about a word today! :D

The word is “missive”. Have you ever heard of it, fellas? #WOTD

Missive means a written message, a letter.

Missive usually refers to a long letter, usually an official one.

Missive refers to a handwritten communication on paper (a letter) but nowadays missive can also refer to an e-mail.

The word comes from Latin.

I’ll give you an example to help you understand, fellas.

I have just received a missive from the company manager.

That’s all I can share for today, fellas. Hope it could be useful for you :)
