As Peter Bowler mentions in the proglegomena of his book, The Superior Person’s Book of Words:
“Words are not only tools; they are also weapons.”
His “funny, useful and elevating little book” attempts to provide verbal weapons for the common man. So that he can be a Superior Person. Indeed. I chose my words with a different purpose, although I do find some of my favorites in Mr. Bowler’s little book:
Plethora … Egregious … Boondoggle
When a word appeals to my sense of the positive, I like it.
Remarkable … Loving … Kindness
Lonesome … Silly … Healing
Soul … Grace … Practice
Nincompoop … Wordsmith … Prankster
Great War … Cool beans … What if
What are some of your favorite words?
