V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary


noun, verb

Definition: (n.) a short or temporary visit; (v.) to stay for a short time

Synonyms: visit, layover, stopover, stay, vacation, rest

Antonyms: settle, colonize

Tips: Sojourn is derived from the French word sojourner, which means "stay for a time." It may be helpful to remember sojourn by thinking of a "short journey." Or, if you recall, the first robotic car sent to Mars was called the Sojourner. It was a short mission, but ironically, the Sojourner never returned from Mars, so it may not have been aptly named.

Usage Examples:

We took a five-day sojourn to Mexico last spring. (vacation) noun

We will sojourn in a mountain cottage for a few days of our trip. (stay, stopover) verb

She will sojourn in Italy for a few days, then on to France. (layover, stopover) verb

I spent a lovely sojourn at my friend's house while my own house was being painted. (visit, stay) noun
