Illini Word Of The Week — Inveigle

It’s time for a vocab lesson.

NCAA Basketball: Minnesota at Illinois Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve all had to find extra ways to pass the time while sheltered-in-place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Maybe you’ve been doing more DIY projects around the house, giving yourself a home haircut, organizing your closet (what do you mean you want me to throw away all of my graphic tees?), or — my wife’s personal favorites — perfecting your savage Tik Tok dance moves and getting drunk during Zoom calls.

I figured since I’m verbose in real-life conversation and I get paid to write, why not expand my vocabulary during my down time?

Let’s learn a bit...and try to have fun, too.

Here’s what you had to say:

I See What You Did There

Scholarship Players? What Are Those?

Convincing the Nachos? Or Convincing Yourself?

If you’ll excuse me, I have to inveigle my wife to let me keep my Chief Illiniwek T-shirt.

See you next week!
