Acquisitive

Acquisitive

<ah-qwiz-zit-tiv>

predatory; greedy; materialistic;

being eager to get things, knowledge or money.

The acquisitive squirrel gathered nuts all day. It was happy all winter.

Memory trick:
acquisitive reminds of acquire.
acquire means to get something.

At work:
She is relentlessly acquisitive about accounting. She is the best accountant we have.


Be acquisitive about knowledge.
