Slight hijack here. I agree with Joe on this one. I do some volunteer tutoring and I tell kids that words are the "atoms" of thought and speech. And that the more words that you have in your verbal "chemistry set" the more complex the thoughts that you are able to formulate in your head and articulate out of your mouth.
