I like to open the dictionary to a random page and note down cool words, once a month. It’s a good writing exercise, and it introduces me to new words. I also rediscover words that just look neat or sound beautiful.

This month’s cool words:

  • Faro – a card game used for gambling, its name probably derived from “Pharoah”
  • Farrago – a medley or collection of miscellaneous items
  • Farrow – to produce pigs
  • Fatigue – military clothing
  • Fawn – a young deer
