Word of the Week Challenge: perilous

In our celebration assembly this Friday we announced our first Lawford Mead ‘Word of the Week’!  We will decide on a interesting word every Friday and challenge ourselves to use it in sentences between assemblies.

This week we have chosen ‘perilous‘!

The Oxford dictionary says perilous is an adjective that means ‘Full of danger or risk‘.

For example: ‘a perilous journey south
Can you post a comment below with a great sentence that accurately uses perilous?
Let’s see what we all came up with before next Friday!

  • The awfully aggressive, hostile dog barked then lunged at him. Fortunately, he fleed safely as he had seen its perilously sharp claws.

    Does ‘periously’ count? They mean the same thing…
