High-flying students have big vocabularies.
That is one solid reason why they are able to get good grades. Words are the catalyst for learning and thinking. Accordingly, the more words one has at one’s disposal, the clearer and more accurate one’s thinking is.
Beyond the academic scope, words allow one to communicate one’s feelings and thoughts to others as well as persuade and infl uence others. What is not known by most people is that sometimes words are responsible for charting one’s destiny. Vocabulary should not be perceived as a deadpan aspect of language which students are forced to memorize in school. As suggested by the title of this book, vocabulary should be expanded because it refl ects the personality of the speaker.
