FACT: Sometimes, I read articles that are of no direct interest to me to find new words to add to my vocabulary. Big Nerd... and proud of it!
PERSONAL OPINION: I have to believe that the English language as most of us use it is pretty lazy when it comes to words. We find the easiest shortest word to say what we want, and as we are known to do Down South, we make 'em all one big word.
Today I read this article and grabbed four words to try and throw into my vocabulary repotoire:
banalization - lacking originality, freshness, or novelty
ateliers - an artist's or designer's studio or workspace
**My personal fav** conviviality - related to, occupied with, or fond of feasting, drinking, and good company. We just call this a "Gettogether". See? One Big 'Ole Word!
fatalism - a doctrine that events are fixed in advance so that human beings are powerless to change them.
And, you're welcome.
