Mien (n)

OK, last but not least this afternoon, let’s deal with Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day for today by way of this context clues worksheet on the noun mien. It means “air or bearing esp. as expressive of attitude or personality.” Not a word students necessarily need to know, but a nifty noun I’ve always liked, and certainly a nice synonym of demeanor, appearance, or the polysemous aspect.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
