Here’s a useful article from lifehack.org. I learned so much from this.
My favorite is item #20: plethora.
What you think it means: A lot of something.
What it really means: More than is needed.
Plethora simply means that there is more of something than is needed. For instance, you may think that 5,000 people is a plethora of people. However, when you put them into a hockey arena that seats 13,000 people, it’s actually less than half capacity and therefore not a plethora. If you had 13,500 people in that same arena, that would be a plethora of people.
Read on and weep.
