Word of the Day: Swot

This is one of my new favorite words. I love learning new slang expressions, especially if they aren’t American English. It sounds so pompous when I use them in my head in a fake accent; I can’t help but laugh.

Swot, n.
British Slang

1. A student who studies assiduously, especially to the exclusion of other activities or interests
2. Grind

Possible example: “Your sister’s a right swot, what?”
