Reality TV is great, isn’t it.
It is especially great for enriching our vocabularies. Since I’ve begun to watch HGTV, TLC, BRAVO, and the Food Network, I’ve heard words the likes of which I never knew existed. Words that are so new the dictionaries don’t even recognize them as words yet.
Take for example one of my favorites verticalability – which seems to apply to fabric that creates a long, lean look by making the eye move up and down rather than side to side.
So I’ll keep watching the shows, and I’ll keep adding to my list of new words, because hey, I want to have the best vocabulability I can possibly have!
