GULLIBLE: meaning and examples

Good morning.

This week will be the last week of Daily Vitamins in 2008, and then we will take a holiday break until Wednesday, January 7th.

This week I wanted to go over a few of the interesting words and expressions that came up in the Ziggurat Breakfast Club last Saturday (December, 13th).

Today's word is: Gullible

Meaning: If you are a gullible person, you are too willing to believe or accept what other people tell you and you are therefore easily tricked. Some synonyms would be credulous or naïve.

Example 1:
People who believe everything that is claimed in television advertisements are quite gullible.

Example 2:
Many times while walking down the Ramblas in Barcelona, I have seen gullible tourists losing money playing the shell game.

Have a good day.
