One of the fun and perhaps lesser known features of a Kindle is the Vocabulary Builder, which is a perfect tool for people like me who enjoy learning new words and vocabulary!
It allows you to store all of the words that have looked up the definition for while reading. They automatically appear there once highlighted, and you can review, study, and master the words at a later date.
Here are eight more of the words the I have added to the Vocabulary Builder – some of them are very obscure! Definitions from Oxford Dictionaries…
Definition: Attractive and pleasant to look at.
Definition: Speech or writing that contains too many words and is tediously lengthy.
Definition: A distinctive section or ornament at the apex of a roof or canopy on a building.
Definition: A horse-drawn carriage from the 19th century with a roof, four wheels, and an open driver’s seat in front.
Definition: Lacking physical sensation, sympathy, or compassion.
Definition: Something unnecessarily showy, for example in dress, architecture and language.
Definition: An employee who does all kinds of work. (Basically the same as a jack of all trades)
Definition: An American plant of the daisy family, which is widely cultivated for its bright showy flowers.
