Jamie Lee Curtis popped by The View today; as Huffington Post readers are already aware from her regular entreaties on everything from the sorry state of home economics classes to the eroding of our basic social fabric via Padma Lakshmi-hosted reality shows , this is a woman in love with the English language. So much so, in fact, that Curtis has written a book called Big Words For Little People , which encourages children to break out of their limited vocabulary boxes, and start using the kinds of four- and five-syllable words that Sherri Shepherd refuses to believe exist at all, much less knows the definitions to. You know—words like "cacophony," "verisimilitude," and "contraceptive." Let's all put on our thinking caps and do a little learning, shall we? [The View ]
