Word of the Day: Rogue

Happy June! To start the month off, our word of the day today is rogue. The word rogue is a noun. There are actually three definitions for the word rogue. (The last one is quite interesting!)


The first definition is that a rogue is a dishonest or immoral man. It can also be a mischievous but likeable person. The third definition is that a rogue is an elephant who lives apart from the herd. Talk about personal space!

Use it in a sentence!


Claire stood in her room and wondered how the rogue managed to capture all the hearts of the ladies – including hers!




But where did it come from?

The word rogue is suspected to have roots in the Latin word, “rogare”. Rogare means to beg or ask.
