Someone just called you captious. Should you be flattered? Considering your extreme lactose intolerance, is it a good
idea to order veau au béchamel from a French menu? Calumny is to slander as obloquy is to a) flattery, b) sermon, or c)
invective? You’ve just heard that your new boss is a real martinet, should you be worried or excited about an attractive
new addition to your workplace?

Your boyfriend says you have no élan, is he telling you you’re all out of yogurt? Starting to wish you’d paid more
attention in English class? Don’t worry, it’s never too late to develop a million dollar vocabulary—and Vocabulary For
Dummies offers you a fast, fun and easy way to do it.
