"LEarning (Talk To Me (A Game That Teaches The Language of ANY Subject))"
By Derrick Brown
Language and discourse are more important than vocabulary.
Vocabulary is knowledge of words.
If you say "Chuck D's stentorian cadence commands his audience's attention" - you probably have a large vocabulary.
Language is the means by which we use words, numbers and sounds to communicate.
If you instead say "Chuck D's loud, booming delivery commands his audience's attention" - you have impressive language skills.
Discourse is extended verbal expression in speech and writing.
If you instead say "Denzel's smooth delivery captivates his audience" - you, my friend, are skilled in discourse.
