MBWS: A New Series

Due to my influx of language posts, I've decided to start a new periodic series called "Making Big Words Smaller." I see and hear too many people have trouble understanding my words simply because they don't know what those words mean, even when those words aren't terribly complex.

So I'd like to start digging around in my vocabulary and see if I can introduce those words and more to more vocabularies.

I hope I don't seem to be talking down to any members of my audience as I pursue this series. My goal is to educate, not demean; to help, not hinder; to open eyes and minds.

Of course, if you have any words to suggest that I might not know myself, I'd be happy to include them. All posts for this series will be available here (once the ball gets rolling).

  1. Ooh, good idea! I find myself really interested in this project.
    And you don't seem to be talking down to anyone in my opinion.

    1. I'm trying very hard not to. I'm also hoping to learn a few new words myself along the way.
