It’s blog time again and it’s time for another round of Words with Walt!

Each week I give Walter a difficult word and he tries to figure it out! This week – “Reciprocal”. Reciprocal (pronounced ri-sip-ruh-kuh-l) means “given or felt by each toward the other; mutual”.

G – Here we go Walt, this week’s word is “Reciprocal”.

W –Sounds like a type of cheese bro!

G – Not again!

W – Wait hold up, like Reciprocal motion? Uhh…I feel like it means “back and forth”, like oscillating. It’s like a, oh man! I haven’t used this word in ages, like at school! Reciprocal… *he thinks really deeply*. I’d say it’s used in maths. (He’s kind of right). I know there’s the question like, what’s the reciprocal of blab la.

G – Do you want me to put in in context for you?

W – Yep!

G – So uhh… “John and Jane and reciprocal feelings”.

W – Hmmm. It doesn’t sound like a mathematical way of putting it so, it means it’s not limited to maths…I think it’s means opposing. Can you give me another context?


G - Ok. Phil and Sally only just met, but the goodwill was reciprocal.

W - I think it means both ways. (He’s finally right on this one! I’m so excited)

G- So?

W – I feel like it means, mutual respect kind of thing. Like a mutual respect?

G – Final answer?

W - My final answer is that reciprocal has more than 1 meaning. 1 meaning can be used in maths, the other one is that it can go both ways, like mutual. Or it’s a type of cheese. I’m kidding!

G – You’re absolutely correct this time round. It does indeed mean mutual, but there is a maths meaning too! Reciprocal in maths means “a number or quantity that when multiplied by a given number or quantitygives a product of one: the reciprocal of 2 is 0.5”. Well done! Unfortunately though, it’s not a type of cheese.

There you have it, another week of Words with Walt! Give me a hard word, and I’ll get Walt to guess it for you!

Catch you next week!
