Words are fun,
witty, provocative, allusive, and more.
They are the means and expressions for knowledge.
They communicate ideas, feelings, thoughts, hopes and dreams.
The value of words is defined not so much through grammar as by
Sometimes they are taken too seriously, and sometimes not seriously
Often, the art of word-crafting is misused or underappreciated.
BrainTrigue, then, is dedicated to the less obvious ways
words enrich us.
