GRE Vocab Word of the Day: Chimera | Manhattan Prep

Posted by


Today’s word is chimera. It means something imaginary or visionary
to the point of being unrealistic. So we could imagine a land filled with imaginary
animals, aka chimeras—like unicorns, mermaids, loch ness monsters—many imaginary animals. Or we could think of something that we envision
that’s not quite real. I could imagine how I want the world to be.
Best case scenario. All humans are living in harmony. We grow our own food. We hold hands every day. This is my vision but at this point, it’s
a little unrealistic. So chimera, it means something that’s imaginary
or visionary to the point of being unrealistic. Subscribe for more Word of the Day videos
