U is for Unctuous Usurious Usurper – Whatever happened to the SAT words?

Studying lists of SAT words used to be a rite of passage for the college bound, and though they were not the most useful words for daily conversation, they enriched our writing.

An Unctuous Usurious Usurper would be of course a fawning, exploitative false claimant to power. Or basically an overly flattering and servile person who has taken the throne by force, and who profits by exploiting people financially.

Huh. Truly, not the most useful words in a daily sense - which is why in 2016 the SAT testing service will be switching to a list of more common words, the kind of vocabulary people actually use on the job, in daily life.

But learning arcane words (arcane = obscure, known to very few) is a great way to enrich your writing. Be careful how you use this type of vocabulary - sprinkle in too many, and you’re writing will feel awkward, pretentious. But a good, old-style SAT vocab word here and there can add a little spice.

Unisonant - The condition of being utterly in agreement.
