Monday Word of the Week – Celerity

Celerity – another word that I stumbled upon that I sort of knew the meaning of but wasn’t 100% sure about it. So I figure if I am uncertain, then so are others.

celerity [sɪˈlɛrɪtɪ]


rapidity; swiftness; speed

[from Old French celerite, from Latin celeritās, from celer swift]
  1. a rate that is rapid


Quote from Don Quixote by Cervantes, Miguel

But hardly had he tasted a morsel when the man with the wand touched the plate with it, and they took it away from before him with the utmost celerity


From Celerity is worth 13 points in Scrabble, and 14 points in Words with Friends

There are 8 letters in celerity: C E E I L R T Y

So, leave a comment below. I love hearing what you think.
