We UpGraded Seniors need to continually (not continuously) challenge our minds to keep them sharp.
Here’s a quick read that you may find instructive. I did.
Steve Pinker, a linguist and cognitive scientist at Harvard has compiled a list of the 58 most commonly misused words and phrases in the English language.
As a retired attorney, I feel that I have an above average command of the language. Lawyers use (and sometimes misuse) a lot of fancy words.
I must admit, however, that I found several words on Prof. Pinker’s list that I have used incorrectly.
Take a look at the list yourself. It’s a fun little exercise to improve your mind and your use of the language.
