I have a fairly poor vocabulary, which is why I have a dictionary within arm’s reach no matter where I go. I write down words I need to check on my mobile phone (it does have a dictionary, but it’s not that comprehensive), but almost as soon as I discover the definition I have forgotten it. I will attempt to add a word each day that has caught my attention to help myself and maybe even enlighten a few others. Some words I won’t know, some I will and will include because I like the definition or the way it sounds.
Today’s favourite word is ennui (pronounced on wee) – a noun meaning lack if interest or boredom.
Try and use this one in a sentence. Personally I would not attempt to use this word in fiction.
