Words are wonderful, but many of us have gotten so used to slang and we overuse words such as “like”, “very”, and “really”. In addition, we have a habit of using the most extreme words possible to describe a situation. For example:
John: How was the movie?
Jill: It was the best thing I’ve ever seen!
Was it really the best thing you’ve ever seen? Or do you lack the proper adjectives to describe it?
Here are some words people don’t use anymore. My favorite is cosmogyral.
Use words responsibly, please.
