That's because they add useless letters and call it a word.

Flavor + Flavour = BAM, 2 words.

Plus they need fancy vocabulary to draw attention away from those fucked up teeth.

I am.

The average American adult vocabulary is between 40,000 and 60,000 words depending on which linguist is doing the study.

I doubt it. I learned close to 1,000 Russian words in a span of four months, so a native speaker has to know a lot more than 2,000



Unless the average American is even dumber than I thought, which is entirely plausible.

The average American adult vocabulary is between 40,000 and 60,000 words depending on which linguist is doing the study.


So you're saying that the person on the radio was not a very cunning linguist.

Brits probably still have an element of a classical education in their school system.

If you understand the basics of root words, your vocabulary magically expands. I'm talking Latin primarily but any familiarity with a foreign language will help your vocabulary.

This is coming from a guy that never took a formal foreign language course but read a shit ton and knew how to use a (printed) dictionary.

Truthfully, the best way to expand your vocabulary is to be literate and read voraciously and be able to operate a dictionary. I'm sure that that is a priority in American education, LOL.

More proof of what we've let ourselves become is more like it...
