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]

n

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 Scrabblefinder.com: 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.
