Words – improver of language dr Dawn Gould

Reading can be such an interesting hobby and an improver of language usage. Why?  Because one noun can suggest a fair sized handful of other different words.

Consider the word AMUSEMENT.  When this word refers to something that is funny a wide variety of other words arise:  delight, mirth, glee, laughs, gratification .

BUT when AMUSEMENT is used as entertainment or as a diversion then one learns: position, interest, activity, pursuit.
