Think about all the times you’ve tried to remember a word. Avoid this trouble by teaching yourself to talk with a terrific vocabulary. Whether you’re toying with games (like Scrabble or Words with Friends) or toiling away on a text for a teacher, triumph by testing out new words. Want to thrill your teammates with your thoughtful theories? Throw some T-words into your theses.

We’ve created this list of words for you, organized by the number of letters in each word. Many of these words have more than one meaning. For simplicity, we’ve only listed one definition for each word.

I’m an award-winning playwright with a penchant for wordplay. After earning a perfect score on the Writing SAT, I worked my way through Brown University by moonlighting as a Kaplan Test Prep tutor. I received a BA with honors in Literary Arts (Playwriting)—which gave me the opportunity to study under Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel. In my previous roles as new media producer with Rosetta Stone, director of marketing for global ventures with The Juilliard School, and vice president of digital strategy with Up & Coming Media, I helped develop the voice for international brands. From my home office in Maui, Hawaii, I currently work on freelance and ghostwriting projects.
