Self Sagacity Definition and 13 Synonyms

angel reading bookI came across a lot of people who do not know the meaning of the word Sagacity, or how to pronounce it. Thus, I decided to dig into its definition, pronunciation, and synonyms to better define the word myself.

First on the list is the pronunciation, try it, and if you are still not convinced go to Merriam-Webster.com and click on the volume icon to hear a sample of the enunciated word. The accent is on the second syllable, which is "ga" of the word sagacity, not on the third syllable "ci", which is how most people would normally pronounce sagacity.

Second is the translation of Sagacity to Vietnamese. Third, the definition of Sagacity in English.

Now to explain why in the world I came up with this title for my blog. I wanted to manage a blog that would cover all the aspects of one's life. When Self was chosen to pair with Sagacity, it was meant to be a place to share the process, or rather, the accumulation of my own 1) wisdom and 2) learning in life. It is at times definitively 3) opinionated. It is not flawless and not always serious, so when you come across a post that is funny, go ahead and laugh, it was probably meant to be humorous.

Most of all, thanks for reading. If you want to leave Self Sagacity your thoughts, it's appreciated. If you ever wanted to be a guest writer Self Sagacity is just a ping away.
