Whether investor relations or strategic public relations, or even in politics, we all know that words matter.
Every once in a while, I get stumped, sometimes amused, by simple-sounding, strange words that I have never seen before. Some only have four letters. I jotted down ten real words I read over the past couple of months that I am happy to share with PW Insight readers.
Test yourself and see how many you know. And please send me a quick email if you get even half of them right. Call me immediately if you know them all.
- to strip blubber or skin from a whale or a fish
- a sound louder than a tinkle
- chain attached to a watch
- to coax by flattery
- a platter for serving meat
- a dark red or purple/brown color
- end of a hammer head opposite the face
- money gained in a dishonorable way
