Welcome to my Blog!

Hey all…

Masey came up with the idea that I should write a blog about words. I love the English language and I love discovering new words. What I hope to do is choose words that are not so commonly used, write about the definition and the etymology, and then show how I think the word is most effectively used.

I find very often that people will throw big words into their vocabulary and a) not use them properly or b) use them only to sound impressive at inappropriate times. You can’t throw ‘big’ words into your vocabulary if most of the words you use have less than five letters. You just end up sounding like a tool.

Anyhow, I am passionate about this, and I hope you will all enjoy reading it. More to come soon!!
