Vocabulary Lesson Number 10


MEL & EL VOCABULARY LESSON NUMBER 10

RAPTOR \'rap-ter\ noun: 1. A contraction of the words rapper (one who raps) and actor (one who acts). Used to refer to one who both raps and acts either independently of each other or concurrently. 2. Freaky dinosaur bird of prey. 3. Canadian basketball team. Variations: Raptress, Rapting.


I really enjoy the Raptor named Common who was just in a rom-com basketball movie with Raptress Queen Latifah. I've heard he has a positive message in his raps but judging from his name he has very low self-esteem.


Who's your favorite/least favorite Raptor? Comment below or Twiddle us here.
