Word of the Week Wednesday: prorogue


This Wednesday’s Word of the Week is: prorogue.

To prorogue means to postpone or defer.  Often, it’s used in reference to a legislative body meaning to discontinue meetings without dissolving it.

It’s kind of a specialized term and the definition doesn’t too much to fire my imagination but I like the sound of the word.
