@SandorD: This is where I sometimes get my hit, when I have a craving for words. :-) http://www.merriam-webster.com/word-games/name-that-thing

Wow -- that's pretty good -- I just tried it -- I only got 7 out of 10 -- it's not easy!

Another thing I like is a visual dictionary -- you know, for when you can't recall the name for that thing on the side of a wooden sailing ship (or whatever)

@Max... That's really nice thing to do! Somewhere I've heard of having a good vacabulary is good for brain(I think so). And even I have subscribed for dictionary.com's word of the day mailing list.

@David: ...if you read Max's posts you will find some words that are not even in the dictionary...  :-)

It's like I always say about my mother -- she has such an amazing memory that sometimes she remembers things that haven't even happened yet LOL

Not that I'm comparing myself to the Bard, but -- as you will read on this website -- "The English language owes a great debt to Shakespeare. He invented over 1700 of our common words by changing nouns into verbs, changing verbs into adjectives, connecting words never before used together, adding prefixes and suffixes, and devising words wholly original."

And if it was good enough for Shakespeare, then it's certainly good enough for me LOL
