It’s not a high-frequency word in English, so I suspect that I wrote this context clues worksheet on the adjective turgid because it turned up as a Word of the Day at Merriam-Webster. The context clues themselves, which I stipulate aren’t as strong as they could be, are composed to yield the definition “excessively embellished in style or language,” “bombastic,” and “pompous.” This is one of those words whose definition brings back more words students may not know. I suppose what I mean to say here is that this document may be of limited utility without some judicious editing or even rewriting.
And that only if one thinks students need to know this word before graduating high school, which they probably do not.
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.
