The Axis of Stevil has many goals, one of which is to educate its followers. Speech and vocabulary are among the first impressions people gain about others. A person's memory will retain a lot of information about another person's speech. Among those, vocabulary rises to the top. Possessing a good vocabulary is as important as learning how to ride a bike. With or without it you will get to your destination, but with it you will get there much faster.
