Most colleges and universities send their entering classes a list of books to read during the summer.  It provides common ground for the frosh to discuss new ideas with each other and faculty during orientation.

Your friendly proprietor has a better idea, to wit, mastering the progressive vocabulary.  Doing so will stand you in good stead during your first week on campus and the years to come.

Here is a partial lexicon, presented in alphabetical order.  The list is not exhaustive.  Feel free to add other words or coin your own by combining two or more in the comments section.

Practice these words and phrases until you can utter them with conviction.  Try constructing sentences with two, three or more, the better to show your progressive erudition.

Never disagree with, or challenge, anyone who uses these words, except to correct, refute, or denounce anyone who misrepresents, distorts, or rejects them.

If you are ever accused of transgressing any of these progressive notions, level two or more similar charges against your accuser.  

Otherwise, Welcome!
