    Language and Word Choice

    Hey!  That one worked right!  

    On this, I figure the chart is reversible if you need to boost word count, or to show the speaking style of a certain character.

    How would you describe a basic color palette?

    Want to confuse your readers?

    With my writing style, these are not words that would be often used. However, creating a character that DOES use these would be fun to work with.

    Often, you just need a new phrase.

    Sadly, this is not anywhere near true even for most college graduates anymore. (Honestly, there are a few even I would have to look up bfore being comfortable using properly.)

    On the other hand, it is a great list to use when your character wants to sound intelligent, and uses all the wrong words!
