No False shortages

stack of books and inkwellPaucity (noun)

A paucity is a small amount of something, an amount that is less than what is needed or wanted.

Its first known use began in the 15th century, originally from the Middle English paucite/ from Latin paucitat-, paucitas, paucus, meaning a little.

Used in a sentence: There seems to be a paucity of useful answers to the problem of traffic congestion at rush hour.

One of the things I like best about using the Merriam-Webster site is that it gives a link to how to pronounce the word (you can hear someone pronouncing it)!

  1. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blogger. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks


    1. Ollie, this WordPress blog is very easy to set up and is self explanatory, I’m not a techno wizard and I managed to do it! You need to have two things to be a successful blogger: interesting information and consistency. If all you do is talk about yourself or your business, people will get bored and stop reading your blogs. But, if you care about your readers enough to keep fresh tidbits of info coming and add an interesting picture to each blog, you’ll be a success. Also, remember to use the tools at the bottom of each of your posts to spread around the link to your blog on your social media sites. That’s all there is to it. Have a fun and informative time blogging, and do come back to let me know about your blog so I can subscribe to yours. Best, Diane T and furfamily
