Hare Krsna prabhuji. When I heard of this website, I was not sure whether I could gain much from it. Recently I registered on this website. Now daily I look forward to learning a new word. And in order to memorize them, I construct my own sentences. I hope this exercise will help me improve my grasp of English lexicon. I thank you very much for this website.
Happy to know that the site is of service to you. Wonderful to know that you are constructing your own sentences. Please feel free to share your sentences in the comments here so that others can also see the word used in multiple contexts.
