Learning new words--

I'm a passionate & avid reader.  Not a day goes by that I don't run into a word I am unfamiliar with.  Not just a word I don't really know, but a word I SWEAR I've never seen before.  I love it!  Look it up, put it into a sentence or two, memorize its spelling, and thoroughly become FAMILIAR with it.

Here's a word I ran into in a blog I subscribe to:  per•sev•er•ate (pərˈsɛv əˌreɪt) 
  v.i. -at•ed, -at•ing.
  to repeat a word, gesture, or act insistently or redundantly.
