Words are nothing but a powerful medium of expression which help communicate an idea. They are the life line of any language. Imagine the fate of all those legendary allegories in the absence of words!
Words can come to life if used at the right place and at the right time. They may make you picture the free flowing river gliding joyfully down the mountain or the beads of perspiration on the forehead of the scared man in a dark, lonely, haunted house. The luxury of choice of words can come if one keeps enriching one’s mind with the new ones making our brain the storehouse of words of all kinds.
There are several sources that can help enrich the vocabulary. Reading good literature of any kind is the first and the foremost way to implant the saplings of the vocabulary into our minds that may soon bloom into the impeccable word stock. Dictionary, thesaurus, interaction with others are the common but sure shot ways to supplement the vocabulary.
Good vocabulary doesn’t necessarily mean using long or difficult words. Instead it means that you know how to express yourself so that the reader will understand your thought. Good vocabulary is the glue that not just holds the readers’ attention but takes it to that far-far away land. So, don’t hold your horses and play with those wonderful words to voice your thoughts.
