I love word squash,cognitive as i have many time used this word. Secondly thing I loved about this article on vocabulary is that author has written most trending words and tried to explain different meaning of the same word which is great. Hopefully, i would love to see something like this more in the coming post. There is some improvement of English words after reading these one. I would also suggest you to take more words from editorial page of newspaper (The Hindu) so that you may write some more useful words.
I would congratulate and appreciate you for such nice words. When comments come authors or writers are highly inspired. I would take your feedback and will write more words from editorial page of newspaper. Further, I would write more post in the future with regard to English usage and pronunciation so that readers must get something more useful and relevant and help them in building great future ahead.
Dear Self awareness foundation, I am literally impressed by the way you write the articles and especially this article. Very useful words are chosen and their meaning has been explained in simple form. I would like to give you suggestions like read newspaper and find some good words from there and write their meaning here. My English is weak and these words are very helpful to me because i find these words most of the time especially vague, divulge and chipped. I would also bring into your notice that while you write try to write more trending words that come in many exam so that end readers or users may be more beneficial. but thanks for such good vocabulary.
Thanks @life is awesome. I would take every word said by you in the constructive way and will write more words according to papers and interviews.

I would really appreciate self awareness foundation who has really worked hard and written some useful vocabulary. I want to bring into account that words like hangry are really new and i am excited to learn such word. Truly I do like niche, extempore as I have read these two words many times but I did not know their meaning till yet but reading here make me knowing their meaning easily. I would also criticize on the other hand by writing that words must be more effective and write some words which came in the exams so that we can gain knowledge and also help student like us in clearing exams
