Suffragist, quotidian, expurgate? These are just a few of the words high school students should know. If they’re foreign to you, time to bone up!

Now you can do that thanks to a book from the editors of the American Heritage® dictionaries who compiled a list of 100 words they recommend every high school graduate should know.

“The words we suggest,” says senior editor Steven Kleinedler, “are not meant to be exhaustive but are a benchmark against which graduates and their parents can measure themselves. If you are able to use these words correctly, you are likely to have a superior command of the language.”
