Word of the Weekend



con·text
(kntkst) n.
1. The part of a text or statement that surrounds a particular word or passage and determines its meaning.
2. The circumstances in which an event occurs; a setting.

Usage: Though this hit by Sheldon Brown against Reggie Bush was enough to warrant an entire article in Sports Illustrated, it must be remembered in its proper context as a rallying point that lifted the Saints to a 27-24 playoff victory over the Eagles.
