Talk about Words
September 26, 2008 Posted by emrick | for fun | for fun, fun stuff, just for fun, take a break, word of wisdom
Shakespeare used approximately 22,000 different words in his published works.
Well-educated people today, use about 5,000 different words when speaking.
Most of us have a “working vocabulary” of 2,000 words.
50 words make up 60% of everything we say.
Mmh where are you standing. mh? There’s no wonder Shakespeare is still holding a good standing in popularity.
