The ACE, in a somewhat unfamiliar role, with some words about . . .

Words.

vocabulary

I do his thoughts an injustice by summing them up with his own words:

The best vocabulary doesn't give you another word to say the same thing -- it gives you a word without which you couldn't express yourself properly at all. It doesn't just stick a new synonym in your head; it introduces an idea that you probably weren't even aware of.

So up with that sort of vocabulary, sure, but please save me from the "excresences."

Which is to say:

Read the whole thing.

We'll wait.
