Vocabulary Cookies

Explicate one's lexicon

Perspicuously, the missives abstrused within "fortune cookies" are unalloyed inanity, and are as commodius as a tea ewer of the chocolate rubric.

Voluminously more edifying would be the implantation of a tiding embodying a word, coincident upshot and examples of deployment.

       Cookie based linguistics ? "Eat cookies and learn a foreign language !". I'll buy that. Encouragement to learn - have to eat all cookies before they go stale.   

       Could be used to teach Americans to speak English properly, like wot it is spoke in London ?

       Language serves a few specific purposes which all contribute to creating the fabric that holds society together. You may want to check the perspicaciousness of some of your terms, as sophism (and thus sophisticated language) often leads to indirect, unclear communication.   

       Subversive literacy (or any literacy) always gets my vote, though.

       <Dodges base-level abstraction> And just why would you call me a "fellow," chap?
1kester, Nov 15 2002
  

       Send me a postcard, drop me a line
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me.
