If I go several weeks without reading I notice my vocabulary eroding, and end up in a quagmire of perplexities trying to articulate thoughts ‘ this thing is like…you know when stuff…i mean like with the idea that you er…you know’
New pet hate; not being able to articulate my thoughts / forgetting the appropriate word!
I am a bit similar. If ive not read a book in a while and I learn a new word or refamiliarize myself with old one I’ll take particular note of it ans start trying to employ in sentences as often as possible for some reason lol. Can be a challenge though when trying drop words like pugnacious and soporific into everyday convos lol.
