  • Intelligence is sexy so that's why we

  • should all know the word "Sapiosexual" or "Sapiosexual".

  • You can pronounce it both ways

  • It means that you're attracted to intelligence

  • At times like these we need

  • a bit more intelligence

  • So here are 10 words that you can start using to

  • improve your vocabulary,

  • make you sound smarter, and therefore more sexy

  • You're welcome

  • The first word is "Beleaguer"

  • Now this means to cause problems or trouble for something

  • In a passive voice

  • "To be beleaguered by something"

  • means to be surrounded by problems or troubles

  • For example:

  • "A lack of funding by the government can beleaguer the education system

  • and cause schools to close"

  • Or an example of the passive voice could be:

  • "His business was beleaguered with financial problems since the beginning"

  • The next word is "Belabour"

  • Not to be confused with "Beleaguer"

  • and definitely not to be confused with "Belieber"

  • This means to explain or

  • to worry about something too much

  • to emphasize something to the point where

  • it's boring or annoying

  • Basically repeating a point more than necessary

  • For example:

  • "I know I arrived late but if

  • you're going to belabour that fact then

  • I'll just go home again"

  • Conflate, this means to merge two things

  • usually two ideas, bits of information, or two points

  • into one singular thing

  • For example:

  • "Don't conflate love and sex, they're not the same thing"

  • The Wherewithal, having the wherewithal to do something talks

  • about having the ability to do it

  • For example:

  • "Unfortunately I lack the

  • wherewithal to start my own business

  • I don't have the money or the brains"

  • The next word is "Hamper", this means to hinder

  • impede, create barriers to progress or success

  • For example:

  • "Lack of practice has really hampered my ability to improve my English"

  • "Reprehensible", this means to act

  • in a terrible, awful, unforgivable way

  • For example:

  • "The way you acted at my party was reprehensible,

  • you kissed my dog with an open mouth, in front of my cats!

  • You know how jealous they get!"

  • The next word is "Erudite", this shows great knowledge,

  • education, shows that you've learned a lot

  • For example:

  • "Yes but Obama was articulate and erudite,

  • Donald Trump just sounds like DUH DUH DUH

  • The next word is "Impeccable"

  • Perfect, without any mistakes

  • For example:

  • "Wow your English homework was impeccable! Not one mistake!"

  • The next word is "Innate", it means something natural

  • inside you, or instinctive

  • For example:

  • "I have an innate ability to see peoples' aura

  • Your aura is purple today

  • Purple is the sign of the Capricorn

  • and the final word is "Eloquent"

  • This describes speech when

  • it is articulate, fluent and well-expressed,

  • It is 'eloquent'

  • For example:

  • "Here it is, a fragile, delicate, pale blue dot

  • and that's where we live

  • that's where every human has ever lived,

  • and you can see the vulnerability at a glance" - Carl Sagan

  • He spoke so eloquently

  • So I hope your vocabulary has improved

  • Now you can sound smarter and sexier

  • Go out there and be sexy!
