Word of the Week..... PLEBEIAN.

Nothing wrong with expanding your vocabulary and knowledge of words.  Who knows when you may encounter or need to use them.  Here’s the word of this week:

Plebeian: Adjective.
1.  Belonging or Pertaining to the common people (lower or middle class); common place
2.   vulgar.

Tisha always thought she came from a wealthy background until attending prep school with others and realizing she is a part of the plebeian population.

Jack didn’t realize how inappropriate a plebeian joke was at work  until he received a written reprimand. 

Try using it in a sentence this week.
