My vocabulary is quite limited. Yesterday, through conversation or reading I ran into some new words that humbled me. I'm going to try to use them everyday this week. I'll be giving myself bonus points if I can use them all in one sentence!
insipid- without distinctive, interesting, or stimulating qualities; vapid:
thaumaturge -a worker of wonders or miracles; magician.
pugilism-The skill, practice, and sport of fighting with the fists; boxing.
Anybody have some words I should add to my vernacular this week? (Doppleganger is definitely in there!)
