Some New Words No. 2

So, you might remember my first Some New Words post but since then I've acquired three new words. I came across them in a few books and I wasn't sure of the meaning and I really enjoyed my first post so much that I thought we'd make it a regularly occurring thing. And for anyone wondering, these definitions are taken from bing and I add my own examples.


Relating to or denoting the later part of the Stone Age, when ground or polished stone weapons and implements prevailed.
E.g. The house was very Neolithic.


A tapering stone pillar, typically having a square or rectangular cross section, set up as a monument or landmark.
E.g. While travelling I saw a few obelisks.


Deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.
E.g. As an artist, she was quite eclectic.

My favourite word out of the three would have to be eclectic because I think I tend to be eclectic, I often find inspiration for my blog posts hidden among dozens of other bloggers posts and I always look at other blogs for inspiration for my own. I hope you've learned something new, as I have. If you haven't already checked out my first Some New Words post then please do so.
