☆ ordinary  平凡な
Something or someone that is “ordinary” is normal, and not special or different in any way. It can also mean that the thing is “not interesting” and is “dull”. You probably already know this word, so let’s look at some different words that have a similar meaning:
common – something that is common is found in large numbers, or happens often. It is not rare, it is ordinary. “My name is quite common in England.”
banal – something that is banal is not interesting and very ordinary, so you don’t like it. “The music was banal and too loud!”
run-of-the-mill – something that is run-of-the-mill is very ordinary, with no special features. “She was an average run-of-the-mill kind of student.”
Do you know any others?
