If there is one thing that binds you and me in our world called the blogosphere; it is the love for words, agree? I bet you also devised a way to increase your vocabulary bank when you were younger. Did you find yourself meticulously highlighting every foreign word you encountered while reading a book back in school for instance?
Let me count the ways of discovering the love for words
Learn a new word every day. The newspaper, magazine and internet are a rich sources for a gazillion of words. Choose one interesting word and use it in your daily conversation wherever you may be. This will help boost the retention of word. If there are 365 days in one year, you’ll learn 365 new words in 12 months!
For the obsessive-compulsive (OC), record the word of the day by creating your own dictionary complete with its meaning and a sample sentence in a dainty notebook. This could also be a good reference when you are unearthing your vocabulary and preparing yourself for a new blog entry or an article you need to come up with.
Compel yourself to love the habit of reading. It is through this activity that we come in close relation with the many words we knew and the many more words that are unfamiliar to us. This habit will also take you to an unknown place, and discover a whole new microcosm.
