Big Words Can Come in Small Packages- Huff Post

happy monday.

i came across this huff post article about 60 small-ish words that probably aren’t in your vocabulary but definitely should be. how great are words? so much meaning can be wrapped up into one little noise. the older i become and the more time i spend investing in the exercise of writing, the more i have come to love the power of words. especially finding the right one.

enjoy finding some words to try out for a test run.

ah, the vitative girl tootlishly explains her appreciation of trantles and quoz acquaintances as she thobs about positive living…

(a few of my favorites below…) from huffpost:
