Your Vocabulary

59 posts in this topic

How would you rate it out of 10?

 

Are you able to define most of the words you use to a good enough standard for somebody to understand the meaning of the word or do you just throw bigger words in that you know a partial meaning of and just know what context to use it in

 

Starting reading books again and listening to good interviews and I am having to stop every few minutes to look up a word, my vocab has stalled hard over the last few years, been taking steps to correct it since the start of the year.

More challenging than Ulysses yeah?  :lmao:

vocabulary is more than just defining a word, its also how you articulate the words you use in a sentence and also the execution of it

my execution is poor.  I am very good at articulating myself in written format because I can sit and think about it but lacking in general speech

If the best on here is 10 then 9.5 I dip in and out of di slango here and there, but I consider myself a wordy poster. 

 

If we're talking about articulacy in the wider scheme of life then 7.5

Stephen Fry is probably on a 9 so base yourself against that.

I would say a 5, definetly stalled recently along with my spelling due to spell check.

I adapt well to my environments though.

Only because I interact with people who have a far superior vocabulary to my own, I'm going to give myself a 7. I could hardly keep up with the high society folks, but I use words like Remonstrate, Caveat, Hyperbole, Innocuous, Amalgamate and Deprecate fluidly without looking like a d*ckhead.

 

So yeah those 6 words are at the upper limit of my Vocab, I don't get more extreme then that
