Dexterous is an adjective that means skillful or adroit.

Our word of the day comes from the Latin word dexter (DECKS ter) meaning ‘on the rights side.’ Because most people are right-handed and do things more skillfully with the right hand, the word dexterous came to be a synonym of ‘skillful.’

I love watching Amy’s dexterous work on the balance beam. It’s lovely to see that kind of skill.
