V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary


noun, adjective

Definition: (n.) a large, indefinite number; (adj.) innumerable

Synonyms: abundance, lot, host

Antonyms: few

Tips: Myriad originally meant "ten thousand," but now myriad typically refers to an innumerable amount. Myriad can also be used as an adjective, meaning "countless, endless or multiple;" in this case, the word is not followed by the preposition "of" like it is with the noun usage.

Usage Examples:

The young star seemed to be constantly surrounded by a myriad of admirers. (lot, host) noun

The cove, with its myriad of colorful fish, is an ideal spot for snorkeling. (abundance) noun

Since the economic downturn, young college graduates no longer have the myriad of job options that they would have had just three years ago. (abundance) noun

It was very soothing to walk through the botanical garden with its myriad rare plants and flowers. (endless, many) adjective
