    In order to enlarge your vocabulary
    The best thing to do is using dictionary
    However, we do not see people read dictionaries as if they read novel and drama or poetry
    In fact, each day each member will give as a word and its meaning from a reliable dictionary and I will check

    accommodate


    verb 1 provide lodging or sufficient space for. 2 adapt to or fit in with.

    [SIZE=-1]— ORIGIN[/SIZE] Latin accommodare, from commodus ‘fitting’.
