A couple of faithful readers asked recently how I know the definitions of so many words.

Fessing up time: I don’t always. That’s what dictionaries are for! And I can find out what the words mean at several online dictionaries, which I consult regularly. While I do have a decent vocabulary, I don’t know the EXACT meaning of many words I can use correctly. I’m often amused and amazed at how many of them have meanings I never knew about, but I show you the ones that most of us would at least recognize.

So, here are the words for this Tuesday; how many do you recognize?

And if there are words you’d like to see featured either here on Tuesday or on the newer Wednesday’s Word & Woes (where I highlight just one pair or triplet), please let me know. I promise to use the ones you are interested in.
