100 Words Every High School Graduate Should Know

The Editors of America Heritage dictionaries have completed a list of 100 words they recommend every high school graduate should know.
" The words we suggest," says senior editor Steven Kleinedler, "are not meant to be exhaustive but are a benchmark against which graduates and their parents can measure themselves. If you are able to use these words correctly, you are likely to have a superior command of the language."
I don't know about you, but there are one or two words on that list I don't regularly incorporate onto my blog, and I might have to look up some if a fellow blogger did have the acumen to inculcate some of them, but my brain is rather vacuous.
