When was the last time you learnt a new word and what was it?


It is said that despite having a steep increase in vocabulary as a child and a young adult, we start losing the ability to learn new words as we just skip past them. Do you keep your vocabulary fresh by learning new words - what was your latest new addition?

    It is never too late to improve one's vocabulary- it is a bit like putting more colours onto your palette!

    Great word, tender/affectionate at one end, and tender/flavorful at the other!

    Nice one - natatorium- I love the detection of word meanings from its roots as well as contextual clues, Ian.

    Brilliant- I knew archipelago but didn't realise pelagic meant 'of the sea'. That goes right into my list of new words learnt. I have written a series of etymology hubs called ' every word has a story' in which I link stories to words.
