I have always been intrigued by words and their definitions. I believe word choice is crucial whether writing or speaking. Many of the words I use daily were learned while reading thus giving me a rather decent vocabulary. I don’t see this happening with children today. Too many books are dumbed down for them; a trend that has crept into adult fiction.
I don’t claim to be a master. I will undoubtedly make mistakes. Please be tactful when pointing them out. In the meantime, I’ll keep learning and striving for the very best language in everything I do.
For this reason, I have created The Weight of Words. I’ll feature various words and definitions I have found interesting. I hope you will find them useful and/or helpful. If you have any word suggestions for this category, please don’t hesitate to comment.
