  1. More great words! Thanks. Part of the problem with English is that there are sooooo many words. It’s hard sometimes to find the one that has the right shade of meaning. Keep up the great posts!

  2. I am grateful for the pronunciation guide for bivouac, I am not sure what I was calling it in my head before and I never bothered looking it up 🙂
