Bromide (n)

Here is a context clues worksheet on the noun bromide. It means both “a commonplace or tiresome person : BORE” and  “a commonplace or hackneyed statement or notion.” The context clues supplied in this document are keyed to the second definition.

And while I stipulate that this isn’t a high-frequency word in English, it is nonetheless a very useful word, especially given the state of our contemporary economic, political, and social discourse.

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.
