Re: Expanding your vocabulary

Re: Expanding your vocabulary

^ Mmm! That's a good strategy!

Yes, I pretty much agree with everyone else: Read, write, and use new words in everyday speech. For me, actually using unfamiliar words verbally--in conversation--helps most in really learning them.

It is also amusing to pull out a word like "spurious" or "gregarious" in a casual setting, like at work (for me), especially if there are sarcastic people present.
