Words at Work

You might want to sign up for daily emails from BusinessDictionary.com if you want to increase or “polish” your business vocabulary. I signed up several months ago, and I can honestly say that receiving the daily emails has been a learning experience for me. Some days the words are more basic than others. But, even the basic words are defined in new, contemporary ways.

Here’s one of BusinessDictionary.com ‘s definitions for “media” — a definition I share with students in my writing courses:

Communication channels through which news, entertainment, education, data, or promotional messages are disseminated. Media includes every broadcasting and narrowcasting medium such as newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, billboards, direct mail, telephone, fax, and internet.

What’s great about BusinessDictionary.com is that the information they share is current and relevant. I think we can all benefit by being more “current and relevant” in today’s business world. And learning new words and definitions to help us be better communicators in business — and in our personal lives — can be a big help!

Until next time,
