Hi, Fellas! How are you doing? How are your days so far? This evening we meet again in word of the day session. This time I am going to share ‘impetus’ as the topic. Have you ever heard about this word?
Impetus is adopted from Latin, ‘impetere,’ which means to attack. In a sentence, ‘impetus’ acts as a noun with a meaning a force to activate a process or to increase its activity. In addition, this word could mean a force in order to make something moving.
There are some synonyms of ‘impetus,’ such as
- ‘motivation,’ etc.
To complete this discussion, I would like to give some sentences with ‘impetus.’
- “The picture of a large sum of money is the impetus of corruption.”
- “The permission to study abroad could be the impetus, so he’s been study harder lately.”
