Good work!

MY VOCAB PRACTICE

  1. I feel placated when I hear colorful language and an expanded vocabulary used in conversation.

  2. I'm not sure why, but it just sounds pleasant to me when less-common words are using in lieu of plain/basic ulterior choices.

  3. I'm pleased to help others expand their own vocabulary, and hope to influence the lexicon.

  4. I'm a little worried by how complacent the newer generations are with making up new words (aka slang) when there are perfectly fitting choices already in existence, if they could only expand their vocabulary (via preexisting words, not made-up slang) and think outside the common lexicon.

  5. Despite that worry I remain placid, for the evolution of the lexicon requires new words to come into existence. I just wish some of today's slang didn't sound so dumb.

Definitely, @majes.tytyty! 😄 Being a non-native English speaker myself, I am learning a lot from these Vocab posts. There are words that are new to me, and some which I knew but never really bothered to know the meaning. Along with participating in this challenge, I also learn how some words are pronounced, because sometimes how you think it is pronounced is way different from the reality.

Anyway, THANK YOU! 😀

MY VOCAB PRACTICE.
1.Please-:
Please forgive me.
2.Pleasant-:
Weather of murree is pleasant today..
3.Placid-:
His behaviour is very placid to his companion
4.Complacent-:

5.placate-:
I know your work is placate to this job.
