Word of the Day (labyrinthine)-31JAN21

Today’s “Word of the Day” is labyrinthine and it is an adjective meaning “complicated, intricate, complex; confusing, baffling, perplexing, mystifying, bewildering”.

Example Sentence: The coordinated effort by users of the online forum Reddit to drive up the share price of GameStop and other companies is designed to turn the screw on short-sellers. To the layman, the dynamics at play here can seem dizzyingly labyrinthine. But a good place to start is by understanding what short-selling is – and how the Wall Street wizards who do it could end up being wrong-footed by a group of amateur traders. Short-selling is a way of making money by betting that a company’s share price will fall.
