Word(s) of the Day #6

hone v. to sharpen [“Michael Phelps thought he’d hone his skills by cutting his body with razors and attempting to out-swim the sharks that chased him.]

home v. to move towards a target [“The hungry sharks homed in on Michael Phelps.]

Note: “Honing in” has recently been considered an acceptable replacement for “homing in,” and many dictionaries use them interchangeably. However, I still find this incorrect, so I’m sharing the truth with you. You’re welcome.
