Behold! I am the Master of Literacy! The Sultan of Syllables! I am [] and am now your Master of Syntax and Grammar! I implore, no, I command, all words to come through me and I will deem them worthy of this sacred tome of vocabularical wonders. Fear my world, this is my domain, and thus it represents my already twisted mind! For I am the Elder of the Dictionary of Lit!

2003-03-15 [Lozzenger2]: Ah, so a thesaurus too? I think that would probably go under a different page, but if anyone wants to do it, er....contact me...

2008-05-23 [Jeed]: i dont think you get the point of this page. this isnt a page to look up words, its a place for writers to find words you dotn normally use in everyday vocabulary.

2008-05-24 [Imperator]: "Abash", "perplexing"? Those aren't exceedingly convoluted terms but nevertheless, I thought to proffer an exceptional link to an excellent web site for other Elftowners to actuate.

2008-05-24 [Jeed]: that ten to one they've known about since the 5th grade, along with everyone else in the world. and i'de like ot see you talk to your friends, if you even have any, with half of those words you just used.

2008-05-24 [Imperator]: Pardon? Your grammar was too confusing for me there... lol
