I know, I know. Blah blah. You’re tired of hearing people tell you things like that, “because it’ll be good for your SATs” or “because you need to find a different word rather than duh”. However, think of all the awesome, amazing, fabulous, stupendiferous and unique words out there that you could be using. For example:
WOW! Sure you could say “Topsy-turvy”, which is what it means, but why would you when you could say tapsalteerie?
While reading an article “The Last Word” by ErinMcKean in the magazine School Library Journal, I learned a bunch of fabulous ways to get creative with words, learn how to pronounce words (thank goodness!) and learn the Etymology (study of the history) of a word. Fun and fab!
