Vocab #1

I learned three new words this week:

Capricious:  flighty, erratic; ant.: consistent

Prescient:  possessing foreknowledge, foresight; successfully able to predict future events

Acquiesce (not sure how to pronounce this one):  to assent or comply silently or without protest.

Are these commonly known words for most of you?

    You really need to read more. Oh, and listen to me talk, too.

  2. I had the same problem when I was learning Serbian. For some reason, when someone says a word that I don't know it will often just zip right by me--unless I'm listening fairly intently for it.
