English Word of the Day – WATERFALL
waterfall: (noun) a river or stream that falls from a height, especially over a cliff, rocks, or a steep incline.
A waterfall is a natural feature where a river or stream flows over a vertical drop or cliff, creating a dramatic and often beautiful cascade of water.
Waterfalls are formed by various geological processes, such as erosion, and they can be found in different types of landscapes worldwide.
When water flows over the edge of a cliff or a rock formation, it falls freely under the influence of gravity. This falling water can create a roaring sound and often produces a fine mist or spray in the surrounding area.
Waterfalls are popular tourist attractions and are also significant in various cultures and natural ecosystems.

If you follow us on Twitter, you will already know that I write a new word of the day in English EVERY DAY. I always include its definition / meaning and an example sentence to see it in context.
Well this time I couldn’t resist and created a simple image with the definition, of course with a beautiful waterfall in the background. Since not everyone follows our social media accounts (seriously, you should, I publish so many useful resources) I decided to publish it here too. I mean, everyone needs a waterfall in their day! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this.
Have an awesome day!
