The Hindu Newspaper Editorial Vocabulary For SSC CGL /MTS /CPO Exam


Dear Students, we are providing to you Vocabulary Words from The HINDU Newspaper Editorial. We suggest you read a newspaper daily. In case if you are not able to read The Hindu, we will post important words every day from editorial section. These vocab words will help you a lot in your competitive exams.

1.Coronation (noun)
Meaning: the ceremony of crowning a sovereign or a sovereign's consort.
Synonyms: crowning, enthronement, enthroning, accession to the throne, investiture, anointing, inauguration
Example: It is tempting to see Emmanuel Macron’s victory in the French presidential run-off on Sunday as little more than a coronation. 

2.Abstention (noun)
Meaning: an instance of declining to vote for or against a proposal or motion.
Synonyms: refusal to vote, abstaining, non-voting.
Example: Yes, he won  66% of the vote but he did so with one of the highest rates of abstention in recent history and a record number of spoiled ballots. Even those who voted for him often did so by default in order to prevent the far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, from winning.

3.Culminate (verb)
Meaning: reach a climax or point of highest development.
Synonyms: come to a climax, come to a crescendo, come to a head, reach a finale, peak, climax, reach a pinnacle;
Example: The enthusiasm with which government agencies and businesses have embraced Aadhaar should prompt India’s foreign policy planners to deploy it abroad. Executed properly, Aadhaar could become a central pillar of India’s “neighbourhood first” policy, culminating in the creation of a unique digital South Asian identity.

4.Commemoration (noun)
Meaning: the action or fact of commemorating a dead person or past event.
Example: At 39, the pro-EU former investment banker will become France’s youngest-ever President. On Monday, Mr. Macron laid the groundwork for his transition to power, announcing a visit to Germany and a name change for his political movement and appearing with his predecessor at a solemn World War II commemoration, even as the focus shifted to the challenges ahead for his administration. 

5.Lucrative (adjective)
Meaning: producing a great deal of profit.
Synonyms: profitable, profit-making, gainful, remunerative, moneymaking, paying, high-income, well paid, high-paying, bankable, cost-effective;
Example: A NEW commodity spawns a lucrative, fast-growing industry, prompting antitrust regulators to step in to restrain those who control its flow.

6.Enormous (adjective)
Meaning: very large in size, quantity, or extent.
Synonyms: huge, vast, extensive, expansive, broad, wide;
But there is cause for concern. Internet companies’ control of data gives them enormous power.

7.Ubiquitous (adjective)

8.Abundance (noun)

9.Incumbent (noun)
Meaning: the holder of an office or post.
Synonyms: holder, bearer, occupant
Example: Access to data also protects companies from rivals in another way. The case for being sanguine about competition in the tech industry rests on the potential for incumbents to be blindsided by a startup in a garage or an unexpected technological shift.

Synonyms: conspire, connive, intrigue, be hand in glove, plot, participate in a conspiracy, collaborate, scheme;
