Vocab Workshop: Diurnal

Learn English--that's my goal. =)

From: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
"Perhaps, too, something in the languor and softness of her usually haughtily erect form, her diurnal broad-shouldered definiteness, kept my own eyes open."

{di·ur·nal} \dī-ˈər-nəl\ (adj) - (1)a : recurring every day, b : having a daily cycle; (2)a : of, relating to, or occurring in the daytime, b : active chiefly in the daytime, c : opening during the day and closing at night.
— di·ur·nal·ly adverb

I am more of a nocturnal night owl, rather than a diurnal creature.
Cleaning is among my many diurnal tasks.

Are they great sentences? Eh. But they are true!


Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
