An avocation is what calls one away from other work; a vocation or calling, that to which one is called by some special fitness or sense of duty; thus, we speak of the gospel ministry as a vocation or calling, rather than a business.

Barter is the direct exchange of commodities; business, trade, and commerce are chiefly transacted by means of money, bills of exchange, etc. Business, occupation, etc., may be what one does independently; employment may be in the service of another.

How to use traffic in a sentence?

  1. Melissa Soesmann of Leonia:

    It’s horrific, and it’s all the time, they will see that you are trying to get out, but they won’t let you. People are cranky; it’s the morning. By the time they are up here, who knows how long they have been sitting in traffic.

  2. Alioune Thiam:

    What we are losing is a lot less than we are gaining, imagine all the traffic accidents, the discomfort, the diseases linked to environmental pollution. All that cannot be measured.

  3. Tom Robbins:

    When she was a small girl, Amanda hid a ticking clock in an old, rotten tree trunk. It drove woodpeckers crazy.

Years later, Amanda used the woodpecker experiment as a model for understanding capitalism, Communism, Christianity, and all other systems that traffic in future rewards rather than in present realities.

  4. Jerry Sanders:

    Being stuck in traffic is just the most stress-inducing, soul-crushing part of society today, we really want to make people's lives better and elevated, high-speed transportation is the answer.
