    Hello everyone,

    I am constantly striving to increase the complexity of my vocabulary. I like big or unusual words that not many people know the meaning of. So, this thread is one in which we share perhaps unusual words or less well known words and their meanings for us to be able to use. Post as many words as you like including an example and definition.

    I'll start of:

    Word: "Petulant"
    Definition: Childish or bad tempered
    Example: The petulant teenager approached me with a sly grin.
