Words of the Week: Importance of Diction
Diction is important to us here at HazieThoughts and because we are big fans of the banter we want to make sure all our readers and visitors can enjoy the wide range of diction we use. Some of these are merely to inform others are words that have become staples in our day to day vocabulary.
Courtesy of Myles and Jerold (@MCML93 and @iDEWiDOESiAM) every weekday on the @HazieThoughts Twitter account you can find our word of the day. At the end of each week we’ll post the words of the week here just in case you couldn’t catch us throughout the week.
