#WOTD: Eloquent

Hi, fellas! How did you spend your day?

I want to highlight that I spent my breaks from work today to watch some inspiring TED Talks. What I admire about the speakers in those talks is how eloquent they are. I think their eloquence is part of what makes their talks powerful and persuasive.

Anyway, that brings us to our #WOTD today: Eloquent.

Eloquent is an adjective. The word means having the ability to use language clearly and effectively. An eloquent person is good at speaking and persuading people. Eloquent can also mean clearly expressing feeling or meaning when the word is used to describe speech or a writing. Words synonymous to eloquent are articulate, expressive, and fluent.

In addition to the sentence that I tweeted earlier, here are more examples of how to use eloquent in a sentence:

  • Her argument was expressed so eloquently that the audience can’t help but agree with it.
  • That eloquent storyteller has published a very beautiful novel recently.

#WOTD: “Metadata”

Today I’d like to talk about the word I just stumbled upon in the dictionary: METADATA. 

Stumbled upon = tidak sengaja menemukan.

Metadata is defined as “data that provides information about other data”. 

It’s a relatively new word that is first used in 1983. 

 ‘Metadata’ is a plural noun, but can be singular or plural in construction. 

The word is commonly used in the field of science and technology. 

A great example of metadata in everyday life is library catalogue. 

  
‘Meta’ is derived from a Greek word which means “after” or “beside”. 

‘Data’ is plural form of ‘datum’ which means “what is given”.
