 Grendel's Vocabulary

(Talking, talking. Spinning a web of words, pale walls of dreams, between myself and all I see.)

Who would have thought that a brute like Grendel would have anything to teach us sophisticates of the new millennium ?

But it's a fact.

Learning to talk and write like Grendel (in most cases) has been shown to increase the average person's ACT/SAT/LMNOP score by an uncanny bigness. So, get to work. Look up these words and toss them into your brain pan. (They cook up real tasty with butter, onions, and thane's liver.)

Thanks to Barbara Walker for the idea and the initial list.
