We need you to help us convey the meaning of the word below in a video that’s 1 minute or less. Do it well and we’ll feature your video on Project ED and you’ll have a shot at the top prize!

Before you get started, here are the MUST-HAVEs for your video:

  • Your video must be no longer than one minute
  • You must use the definition provided below
  • You must display the word, part of speech, definition, and an example sentence on the screen at appropriate points during your video

Pernicious (adjective) - wicked; harmful; damaging

Pernicious is an adjective meaning wicked; harmful; damaging.

Writers use pernicious to describe people and things that are particularly harmful or extremely unpleasant. The jealous bridesmaid’s plan to ruin the wedding was particularly pernicious because she was the bride’s best friend. The scowling man in the top hat was an especially pernicious guest—his mere presence caused people to leave the party.

Submission requirements:

In a video, no longer than 1 minute, you must:

  • Clearly and accurately demonstrate the meaning, pronunciation and correct usage of the word using the definition provided.
  • Display the following as text on screen at appropriate points during your video:
    • The word and its part of speech (noun, adjective or verb).
    • The definition of the word.
