Wednesday Word of the Week – Pitch

Thanks for pitching up to read my latest word of the week post.

Pitch can mean to slope downward, put up a tent, or the space said tent occupies. It can be to throw something, fall headlong or submit a suggestion to an editor. It’s the movement of a ship in a longitudinal direction, angle of a roof or where cricket is played. Pitch is a quality of sound, the gloop you get from distilled turpentine or where a market trader displays his wares.

It can also be to express something at a particular level – I do hope I’ve pitched this post correctly. I also hope I’ve got everything right and we won’t need to have a pitched battle over my definitions.

The pitch of these steps was so steep that if the ship had pitched or rolled I’d have pitched down them.
