Enlarging Your Vocabulary!

The great writer and storyteller, Jeffrey Archer, has my attention this Fall of 2012.  The novels about Harry Clifton are great reading.

At one point he uses the word Codswallop to describe something being nonsense.

We need to be mindful of teaching schoolkids their adjectives, in our day and age.  Something more than just Amazing and Awesome, BS and Crap.

I think saying codswallop makes one sound much more intellectual than sinking to the word crap.
