Context for New Word

Screenshot of context where found chauvinism

While reading Barron, Montuori, and Barron (1997) I came across chauvinism as a new word.

The concept of fanaticism is interesting. In some contexts I guess it can be a good thing. Pretty sure the authors didn’t mean the second definition.

The following are the words that are in the New Word Project:

The definition for this word taken from the Terminology app, which is based on the Princeton University’s WordNet lexical database. If you are interested in how I created this resource and how I add new words to it, you can see my blog post Title of Blog Post.
