words words words


Apparently the average American has a working vocabulary of 600,000 words. That sounds like a lot, doesn’t it?  But the average Brit has a working vocabulary of 800,000.  That’s huge! 

We probably won’t come back with a funny accent (a la Madonna),  but we might come back with some funny new expressions!

Here are a few links about words and books and stuff that I’ve enjoyed.
