Am I the only one who gets properly excited when I learn a new word? I spend the next few days using it as much as possible in daily conversation and clishmaclaver.
And it’s incredible to think that just by using different combinations of the same 26 letters of the alphabet, you can create such a vast array of unbelievably fantastic words and phrases.
Phantasmagoria, for example. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?
And I know that sesquipedalianism is often said to obfuscate pellucidity, but who cares? Brobdingnagian complicated words are spledierous and should seriously be used more often.
Vocabulary is such a beautiful thing and yet most of us just use the same old words, day in day out. In all seriousness, it’s intellectually stunting and quite frankly, rather boring.
It’s time to change that. Let’s be a bit more grandiloquent and verbose, shall we? Try it. It’s so much fun.
