    It really pays to build up your vocabulary for understanding the words which others use, and for your own use.

    A professor once told his tutees:

    ‘Write English just as you please.

    Grammatical rules

    Are simply for fools,

    And spelling is only for bees.’

    His colleague said: ‘No. To excel

    You’ve got to use English so well;

    If you know how it works

    You can cope with its quirks

    And write books which can easily sell.’
