Having a large vocabulary is something that comes in handy for people who love communication! Being able to articulate your point to someone else and express exactly what you want to say can be done easier by having the right vocabulary words on deck. The selection of certain words can enhance sentences. For instance, using the word amplified instead of the loud makes a difference in the overall story you are trying to tell.

In the end, it all revolves around diction... which is word choice. However, all of this wonderful diction is unable to occur in communication unless the speaker has a handle on the more profound and more intriguing words in the English language. Fortunately for everyone, the English language is filled with a variety of incredible words but we have to know what they mean in order to use them properly within our conversations.

Luckily, it does not always matter where we learn the words that we learn-- all that matters is that we learn them somehow! Certain words on a vocab list are typical to be spotted in an academic setting like a classroom or lecture hall but that just is not always the case.

Now, are you proud of your vocabulary wisdom? Do you excel in articulating your opinions to someone? Do you prefer face to face interactions compared to texting over your mobile device? If so, it is now the time to see how many of these tricky word you know. Are you ready to challenge yourself?
