Word du jour: vocabulary.

Look for new words everywhere - labels are a good place to find them.

When’s the last time you added a new word to your vernacular? If you’re scratching your head, it’s been too long.

Vocabulary is the food of communication. It’s what we need to understand, use, hone, and continually examine. It’s one of the primary methods of conversing with people, starting with ourselves.

At last nights Swig & Stitch I decided to use the theme of Vocabulary. Words have always been interesting to me and I often write down words I’m unfamiliar with when I read latest one: facile). Then I work to integrate them into my vocab until they are firmly in use.

Vocabulary I chose for last night went as follows:

  1. Course one: Cider, fermented apple beverage. Juice is unfermented. Bonus: Perry is fermented pear beverage.
  2. Course two: Flagship, the main branded item form a business which the business is known for.
  3. Course three: ABV, Alcohol By Volume, alcoholic percentage of a beverage.

Know your words. Learn new ones, seek them out, apply them, increase your eloquence and understanding simultaneously.

What’s your word du jour?
