words


Here are just a few words (from a long list) that I'd like to incorporate into my vocabulary and begin using with relative ease and/or wild abandon in my speech (without sounding too highfalutin to my sistahs and brutthahs in da 'hood):
Pundit
Braggadocio
Loquacious
Hubris
Pontificate
Irascible
Salubrious

Of course, I'll always use my many made-up words and phrases: yonky, skizzy over, yoi, snortling, etc.
But increasing one's vocab is always a good thing, wouldn't you agree?

[P.S. I do so luv quite a few of those BeeGees songs...]
