Happy National Dictionary Day! The day is held in memory of Noah Webster, a founder of the American Dictionary in 1758. Take this day as an opportunity to broaden your knowledge of the English language and the study of the dictionary. There are thousands of obscure and wonderful words you may want to acquaint yourself with.
Some interesting words I found earlier are:
Copious but meaningless talk or writing; waffle
floccinaucinihilipilification [mass noun]
The action or habit of estimating something as worthless.
A fool, simpleton, noodle.
a person who begins to learn or study late in life
Why not equip yourself with a dictionary from Catalyst, or go online, and discover new words that could benefit you in your academic assignments or everyday life?
It is never too late to experience the amazing extent of the English language.
