Yesterday I learnt the word “dimwot”. I believe it to be either a misspelling of the word “dimwit” meaning a stupid or silly person or perhaps a minor adjustment of the original word. When researching it, this forum was the 8th Google result - so it’s certainly a little used word.
I’m adding it to my lexicon.
Other words I remember becoming aware of in recent years that I now use regularly are “juxtaposition” and “conflate”.
What words do you remember learning or becoming more aware of in adult life that you now use regularly?
