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!
