Wednesday Word of the Week – engross

perf5.000x8.000.inddI knew that engross meant to fully occupy, as in ‘she was so completely engrossed in the Paint Me A Picture that she missed her stop and was late for work*’. What I hadn’t realised was that there are two other definitions.

Engross can mean to make a ‘fair copy’ of a legal document or to reproduce something in a larger format.

Have you ever been involved in any kind of engrossment? Please tell me if you have, as I’m sure I’ll find the details engrossing.

*I’m told this actually happened to someone. She’s since bought other of my books, so I think I’m forgiven.
