Let's Work Together to Build a Better Vocabulary!
I abominate inappropriate language, especially when it comes out of young peoples' mouths. I loathe the fact that some people can not articulate their ideas, so they feel that they have to insert bombastic, highfalutin, irrelevant words into their sentences to "get their point" to be "understood."
In a few cases, I have politely called people out in public regarding their use of profanity, mostly because I don't want my child to hear and repeat such foolishness.
Here are a few sites that can help people learn new words to insert into their sentences so they can be succinct and understood without the unnecessary, inappropriate nouns, verbs, and adjectives!
