I'm quite the book worm, happily spending many evenings curled up working my way through a good thick novel. This has led to a decent comprehension of words... but has not improved my pronunciation in the least! Seriously.
One word that has been cropping up for years in various books is insouciance; and while I figured out what it meant I've never used it... if I were to take a stab at it last week I probably would've said ins-ooce-eance. Not pretty, people. But thankfully there's a handy thing called the internet which set me straight. And insouciance sums up very nicely what I need to feel right now, last week drained me emotionally, plus it's summer and if ever there was a time to be carefree and light-hearted it's now!
