Monday, 4/7/14
Dissonance- disagreeable sounds
You know it's dissonance if you have the strong desire to cover your ears with your hands.
 
Tuesday, 4/8/14
Goad - stab or urge on as if with a pointed stick
The sergeant had to goad the reluctant soldiers into action. 

Wednesday, 4/9/14
Lethargic - deficient in alertness or activity
When you feel lethargic, you're sluggish or lacking energy. Being sleepy or hungry can make anyone lethargic.

Thursday, 4/10/14
Abscond- run away; usually includes taking something or somebody along.
Abscond is to escape, often taking something along. As a kid, you may have absconded from your lemonade stand — with the coffee can of cash in hand, and your bewildered sister still filling cups for your customers.
 
Friday, 4/11/14
Cogent- powerfully persuasive
When you make a cogent argument, it means your argument is clear and persuasive. In these days of 24-hour entertainment news and sound-bite sized explanations of complex government policy, it’s hard to find a cogent argument amidst all the emotional outbursts.
