  • vocabulary expander

    Check this out! I have Dictionary.com as a favorite, usually have it open when writing emails or just posting on forums. I noticed a new feature today, that I just invested (wasted?) too much time on.

    My word score says I know 45K+ words. It has word challenges and a few games to expand your vocabulary. My kind of fun! (Do I lead a boring life, or what??)

      A diverting endeavor, establishing a smattering of vocabulary of which I had hertofore not been cognizant. I forewent the opportunity to matriculate to the secondary round as the program sought to elicit personal information, which induced in me an attitude of recalcitrance.
      People will believe anything, which means I will believe anythingI want to start believing in things that have shapeliness and harmony.

          Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

                  I hated multiple choice in school and I still hate it today. I'd rather write the response than choose from poorly worded, trick answers.

                        I think you know most of the dirty ones, too.

                                I like that you are answering the 'why' questions. Why is the text background red, why are you using the crumbled paper texture etc.
