As you know, now I’m working on the learning materials for the TV-series “Only murders in the building” noticing every little detail about its grammar and vocabulary.
My favourite character in the series, Oliver, has taught me a couple of peculiar words, and I’d like to share them with you.
Watch the video as well, it’s worth it to hear him say these beauties.
1. moxie (US informal) – confidence and determination
I’m looking for motive. I’m looking for means. But most of all… I’m looking for moxie.
2. pizazz /pɪˈzæz/ – excitement, energy, or style
Hamilton. They picked the one Founding Father with no pizazz.
3. shenanigans – silly behaviour that is usually not very serious or harmful
Well, I have to admit I have certainly had my share of Long Island shenanigans.
