Five new words on Friday



So, I decided to try to see how far this goes with a Friday thing - I'm pulling five random words to explore. If you like it, comment to let me know so I know whether or not to continue each week.

For this week - the five words are:

Eschew (Verb)
Esoteric (Adjective)
Torpor (Noun)
Transitory (Adjective)
Monastic (Adjective)

Three adjectives and a noun and a verb this week.

So, what does it all mean?

...The child eschewed candy even though he longed to eat it.

Synonyms include: avoid, bilk, elude, escape, evade, shun, and shy

2 - Esoteric

Esoteric means known or understood only by a few.
...Only some understood the esoteric world of astrophysics.

Synonyms include: obscure, abstruse, or arcane

3 - Torpor

...When I tried to wake him, his torpor lasted a few minutes.

Synonyms include: languor or apathy

4 - Transitory
