Default Learning 5 words of vocabulary, everyday!

Salaam,

I have observed that most people feel themselves incomplete in their expressions while writing. They often feel problems while understanding techincal and complex texts. Besides, there are some questions relating to vocabulary in the exam paper every-year.

Considering all this, I have come up with an idea to post 5 words everyday from my diary. The list consists of those words which I didn't know or wanted to use them while writing. But I guess, learning alone wouldn't be enough. I've to serve the humanity.

I am sure, everybody here willing to learn vocabulary, will visit this section and try to make sentences of the words to get well-conversant with their use.

Regards,
Adil Memon

PS: If I don't get enough response.. I'll drop the project and find some new way to irritate people here :P.

Salaam,

Just a cursory look revealed that you two damsels have used the word "Edict" as a 'verb' though its not a verb, but a 'noun'.

Regards,
Adil Memon

Keep the good work up. I appreciate it!
