New word for the day. For many years I increased my vocabulary by tracking down the meanings of words I read. My way of learning new words is to first try and glean the meaning of the word from its context. If I found the word really interesting and its usage powerful then I would write it down. Once I was done with my reading for the day I would look up all these words in the dictionary. After a long time I came accross this word “autotelic” whose meaning I could not make out from its context.
