Words, words, words.

In the Shakespearean play Hamlet, Polonius asks the question: "What do you read my Lord?"

And Hamlet replies, "Words, words, words."

We often tire of the constant bombardment of words but we never tire of words of appreciation.

Words are the stock and trade of a speaker and writer so it is crucial that we discover words that are fresh and energetic, and learn how to use them.

Verbal Energy is an interesting web site that always has interesting postings about really interesting words. In the most recent posting, Ruth Walker writes a most interesting article on That Dull word, Interesting.
