English Vocabulary

obvious - often or seldom

Sometimes a very rarely used vocabulary occurs like >blatantly<, which has the same meaning as obviously or evidently as to our GG-Computer.
Now I'd like to know how often those words are used in normal English language or high-levelled written English. Where can I find some hints to this subject.


  • I couldn't meet your request, Vreni, but I'd like to tell you that I don't share your opinion about the fact that blatantly should be a "rarely used word". You can meet it in newspapers, magazines, radio or telly news. It's blatant that such a word is not restricted to a high-level written language.
  • Thanks Sandy for your correction.
