new words

The more I read, the less frequently I encounter new words. I can take this as telling me either that I should be trying to read more ambitious material, or that my vocabulary is improving. Perhaps both. Anyway, I got two new words in a single sentence yesterday, and they're jaffas: synecdoche and metonymy. The written word is amazing, and surely the might of the pen is no less than ever. See? Bobby dazzlers!
