The Old Year 2013 Comes to a Close

(Clipart)

This year will soon be over.  It gets me to thinking about this peculiar word close.  Most times the usage will range from completion (which ties in to the year-end theme) to a spatial consideration.

You close a door or can hold someone close.  Think about it.  By using the correct word a series of different meanings surface.  For this purpose we shall include the past tense of the verb among our selections.

Closed Chain, which is another way to describe a ring.  Of course a ring has no beginning or end.

Close-cropped describes a certain haircut.

Closed stance is a style of batting in baseball.

Close-fisted or tight-fisted describes spending habits or the delivery of a punch.

Close-knit means a bond within families.

If a business is reducing inventory they have a close-out sale.

A very small room is close quarters.

Narrow escapes are known as a close shave.

Time to close this article down.  Happy New Year.
