Here are just a few of the words that I am studying this month in preparation for the GRE I will be taking on December 19th.

1. Dyspeptic: suffering from indigestion
2. Pusillanimous: cowardly
3. Impervious: impossible to penetrate; incapable of being affected
4. Soporific: causing sleep or lethargy
5. Imperturbable: not capable of being disturbed
6. Viscous: thick and adhesive; like a slow-flowing fluid
7. Eloquent: persuasive and moving, especially in speech
8. Volatile: easily aroused or changeable; lively or explosive
9. Loquacious: talkative
10. Analogous: similar or alike in someway

DIAPHANOUS and OPAQUE are not ANALOGUS in meaning.

11. Ignoble: having low moral standards; not noble in character; mean
12. Furtive: secret; stealthy
13. Obstinate: stubborn; unyielding
14. Unconcionable: unscrupulous; shockingly unfair or unjust

It was absoultely UNEQUIVOCAL that the man's FURTIVE behavior over the last 2 weeks meant he was engaged in the IGNOBLE  act of cheating on his wife.

Mom thought it UNCONCIONABLE that her toddler was acting so OBSTINATE.
