Today’s word of the day is ruction, R-U-C-T-I-O-N. Ruction is a noun that means a disturbance. 

The precise origin of ruction is unclear. It seems to be a shortening of insurrection. But while insurrection is a more specific term that refers to something like a rebellion against an authority, ruction may be used to describe anything from a prison riot to the noise made by a pair of unruly toddlers.

The ruction outside my front door caught my attention immediately. I opened the door to find my cranky grandparents had been accidentally locked out.

Once again, ruction is spelled R-U-C-T-I-O-N.
