Vocab Builder: Words, words, words

Words, words, words. If you’re a wordsmith, they’re your stock in trade. Here are few, more unusual words to try out:

Nudnik: someone boring or bothersome
Viand: a dish that is considered very delicious
Antediluvian: very old, antiquated
Slugabed: someone who stays in bed because of laziness
Juju: supernatural powers ascribed to a fetish, charm, or similar
