    Default Advanced vocabulary expander

    Here's a list of words that are very useful and not obscure but all of which few native speakers will know (put together by me over many years).

    I have read your lexicon. I think the educated English speakers used to remember around 30,000 words through their lives. If a language can help you to remember millions words within one year, do you think it is a miracle?

    Hi. The purpose of the list is to familiarize yourself with words that are in common use but whose meaning is often not widely understood. They are on the edges of regular vocabulary but NOT obscure or of limited use- I recommend them to all native speakers and those wanting to use the language to a high standard.
