Vacuous, ineffable, hauteur. Languid, nebulous, somnambulatory. Pasquinade, supercilious, punctilious.

Ten words from each chapter are defined and highlighted in the sentence in which they appear. Fill-in-the blank vocabulary quizzes for each chapter are also included, as is a comprehensive multiple choice test.
