Vocabulary, The Words Used Everyday

     Your own vocabulary is what you use to talk. Rapidly though kids are getting weaker and weaker vocabularies. If you could compare what people talked like in the nineteenth century to now you’d see a drastic change. I could go around the streets in New York and ask twenty people if they knew what the the adjective novel meant and most likely under half would tell me it’s a long chapter book. Why is it that people’s vocabulary is decreasing though? Because so many kids don’t talk to their parents as much at home now and they are not learning as many new words. They are not talking because they are busy playing video games or on the phone. Plus the stronger vocabulary you have the smarter you look even if you are dumb. Plus when you have a strong vocabulary you might as well learn a new language such as Spanish. So why not learn some new words, you would be a better blogger and you’d impress everyone you meet. 

Do you know what the definition of the adjective novel is?

  10. Lyon..This is a NOVEL post..(: new, interesting and refreshing. I think another reason that kids have poor voacabularies is that all the technology like text messaging and IMing require quick commninacation. That lowers the quality of the language and it spils over to other forms communication between people. In general you write very interesting post. I enjoy visiting your blog. Your comment box is very cool. Keep it up Lyon. It seems like this blog is a great outlet for your self-expression. You have a lot to say..so don’t ever stop saying!

  11. “Patience” is the key for English!
    Good luck.. And thank you for this useful writing..
