Honestly, this word is chosen out of pure pettiness. Someone told me I used it too often, and so I thought: Well, I have a platform where I can dictate choice of words, so HA!

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week! Here, I inform you about a word that I believe is not used enough and how you can use it in a sentence. The word of this week is:


Gravely: ‘Gravely’ is an adverb. It means: seriously, or solemnly.

Example sentences:

- I would gravely appreciate it if you would back off and not criticize my choice of words!

- The student nodded gravely when they were asked if they could perform a certain task.

- When the kid stubbed his toe, he suffered gravely.
