TODAY IS THESAURUS DAY
Thesaurus day is your opportunity to reintroduce yourself to that best friend of writers, the thesaurus. Whether you’re looking for a new word to spice up your vocabulary, or looking for precisely the right nuance to add to a sentence or phrase, a Thesaurus can be there to help you. While many of us don’t use the great expanse of verbiage that’s available to us, the expanse of language really gives us an amazing ability to express ourselves with beauty and precision.
Poets have long used words in their melodious composition of phrases to evoke the most powerful images, knowing that “very happy” is all good and well, but “exultant” brings about an entirely different scene to mind. What makes an author truly expert is knowing how to blend together words and scenes to capture the mind and really bring across the personality of the characters in their stories. When all you can think of is a “brown” pond, it’s so much better to grab that Thesaurus and find that the word Bistre really captures the heart and meaning you’re looking for. Thesaurus Day is when we can defenestrate our old vocabulary, and use the new space to help build up something a bit more elegant.
How to Celebrate Thesaurus Day
Celebrate Thesaurus Day by breaking out a Thesaurus! Simple as that! Look into it and find all your favorite words and see if you can find a few new favorites by reading through ones that mean similar or the same thing, but perhaps have a bit more panache. Expanding your vocabulary has actually been shown to have positive health effects, and a powerful vocabulary can help you get ahead in your life and career. Remember, language is the key to knowledge, and knowledge is the key to the world!
