It is official! You need to keep your heart nice and ticking to keep your vocabulary warm. A research done by Dr Manoux and others in mid 2009 on “History of coronary disease and cognitive performance in midlife: The Whitehall II study”, suggests that there is ‘an association between CHD history and cognitive performance’.
The English language is filled with many words, most of them that are new to us. Sometimes, occasionally we run into words that are new and they stick on for a long time. Here are a couple of words.
- Thelemic – it simply is a permission to do what they please. It would be difficult to find usage of this word in a sentence. However, it is interesting to know something new.
- Exonerate – free from blame. Example: Jules was exonerated by the court.
- Immure – build a wall around. Example: Sage immured himself.
- Berate – to scold harshly. Example: His father berates every day.
- Coquette – a woman who flirts. Example: Lisa is a coquette in the office.
So, just like this, you will be able to find many words that you don’t know, yet the meaning is very well known.
