Context for New Word

Screenshot of context where found myopic

While reading McNamara (2006) I came across myopic as a new word.

The idea of seeing the forest from the trees, it is so hard to see further than what is right in front of us sometimes.

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.
