    Now, in this class, we genuinely fixate on ameliorating the words in our lexicon as the teacher is very ebullient about sounding sophisticated and whatnot.
    She is very rigorous when it comes to inditing pieces such as essays and if our lexicon isn't up to her prospects or we utilize punctuation incorrectly, we lose an abundance of marks - well, a lot in the sense that it's a lot for a minuscule mistake, conventionally only half a mark per mistake but it all counts.
    Anywho, I was wondering what your opinion on my lexicon and grammar is. Don't expect me to always make sentences with sesquipedal words, I just felt like doing it in this particular sentence.
    Thanks Ceyx for the conception, I relish constructive reprehension.

    In hindsight, I now realised some people may need a thesaurus or something for this thread, my bad, it's genuinely what I'm use to when I indite stuff now thanks to my teacher.
    You understand your words...but it just sounds forced and placed. Some terms didn't need some words, but hey, I like the fact you can speak much better than most people at your age.

    I like that you try to extend your vocabulary, but if you wish to reach the top, as an english speaking being, you should adjust you language to a level were everyone can understand.
    I'm quite shore that not everyone who read this thread understould the entire text.
    Think about it next time.
    Otherwise it was good!

    I wrote "a great essay" not "a essay", so its a not an.

    Yup, i just checked your quote it's "a great essay" not "a essay". Don't correct if you don't know. ._.

    This is because few people focus on punctuation and being able to use different types of punctuation well will set you apart from the crowd that just uses complex words (often needlessly).

    Your grammar is almost fluent, and your vocabulary is wide. I honestly find this newfangled because it's only now that I finally met someone whose vocabulary I can consider as wide as mine.

    To the one who pointed out that the word whatnot is an informal term, I've read the word from a fictional book so I don't think it is informal. I've been customarily using the word whatnot ever since.

    i don't know if you have logolepsy (I do) but as aforementioned, your vocabulary is wide compared to others. However, I find some parts of your thread redundant and idle. I suggest that when writing a literary piece, you must peruse it repeatedly until you are utterly satisfied with your work.

    The word "whatnot" is most frequently used in an informal context and is hard to change the denotation in its context; though, there are few cases wherein informal expressions can be accepted such as in the intricacy of dialogue, but prose, which the class most likely demands, is not one of those situations.

    I don't see the point as to why the word "whatnot" is informal. I've been using it when I write stories and even in some essays I write for my English class. My teacher never pointed out that the word "whatnot" is informal and must not be used when writing a prose.

    The word "whatnot" is informal and too colloquial (except for narrative essays). Your teacher probably did not point it out because narrative essay dialogues are more informal.

    The word "whatnot" is barely even used by people who do not indulge in words. It is not colloquial. I'm asking why it is considered informal.

    I have never mentioned that the essays I wrote for English class are narrative essays. I've written a lot of them, all of different types.
