Word of the Day

Word of the Day- November 19, 2018

embark

(verb) go on board a ship or aircraft

Sentence– Christopher Columbus embarked for India in the fifteenth century.

ii. (verb) begin a course of action

Sentence– Ria left her previous job and embarked on a new career as a teacher.


I could think of many connections with this word. It reminds me of texts in your textbooks too.

  • What does it remind you of?
  • Do you plan to embark on something new in life?
  • Can anybody give a synonym too? It’s rather simple. You use it almost everyday.

Special mention to Videh (class IV- B) for being responsible and coming to me in the break to show me his personal dictionary.

Well done!

  1. Dear ma’am,
    The word makes me think of setting out to do something, like a journey.

    The word embark reminds me of the first story I read, a tale of Grandpa Tales. I have and I will use this word many times in my life. This is my sentence – I will embark to Myanmar in my next vacation.

    The group of foreigners embarked on a journey to the northern hemisphere from the southern hemisphere because they kept a bet between their friends that the first group to reach the northern hemisphere would receive $2000 from the competing team.

  6. Dear ma’am Tarana,
    This word reminds me of the word set sail. I would like to embark on a journey to convince farmers to use organic fertilizers and pesticides. A synonym of embark is set out. My sentence – Aarika will be embarking on a journey to Paris tomorrow after eating her breakfast.

    The synonym of embark is start. It can be used instead of embark. For eg – I decided to embark on a project this summer. Even if we change it to – I decided to start a project this summer, the meaning will remain the same. I have used the word embark many times before. It reminds me of my science project on food.
