Today's word of the day is legerity, L-E-G-E-R-I-T-Y. Legerity is a noun that means alert quickness of mind and body.
The Latin word Levis (LEV ees) means light, as in 'light on your feet.' This is a good way to think of legerity. As a younger man, the prizefighter was praised for his legerity. But these days he just plods around the ring, waiting to get repeatedly jabbed.
Once again, legerity is spelled L-E-G-E-R-I-T-Y.
