Between 2011 and 2013, I walked around with a folded A4 sheet in my pencil case, and each time I discovered a word – in a magazine, a book, but mostly on the Internet – that I either didn’t understand or that I had heard very rarely in everyday conversation but would have loved to use myself, I wrote the word on the piece of paper.
This list is the result of a good portion of the words that I collected.
With a list of words like this one the idea is not to sound smart. It is about having the ability to say what you want to say. It’s about expressing with confidence what you believe and feel, and hope, and think.
In the end it’s about saying what you want to say, in full colour and nuance.
