An open list of 25 words by pterodactyl.
Tip: Add several words or phrases at once by separating them with semicolons.
Don't worry about surrounding whitespace -- we'll ignore it.
I don't expect everyone to know lots of fancy words, but some words are just so gosh-darned useful that everyone ought to know them.
Log in or sign up to get involved in the conversation. It's quick and easy.
