Default Re: WORDS

Confused is one of those words that epresses the richness of language.

It can mean that someone mistakes one thing for another, it can mean that someone is unable to tell the difference between two items, but it can also mean that someone is addled, befuddled, bemused or bewildered on a more permanent basis.

Pretentious: attempting to impress by affecting greater importance or merit than is actually possessed.
I suppose you would use this in a
sentence ending with the word prick!

Default Re: WORDS

Pedestrian is another word with seemingly unconnected meanings. Nowadays we use it as a noun for one who travels on foot, or items associated with such activity. However its earlier meaning, as an adjective, means uninteresting or showing little imagination. As in "Many found his comments stale and pedestrian".
