Have I Forgotten English, Or Did I Never Really Know It?

That is the question that I ask myself when I encounter words on other blogs or web sites that I don't understand. Has living in Israel spoiled my English, or perhaps my knowledge of English was never that great to begin with?

Today I came across the word "revenants" over at My Right Word. Do you know what the word means? Come on, tell the truth!

revenant \REV-uh-nuhnt\, noun:
One who returns after death (as a ghost) or after a long absence.

No one is completely fluent in any language.
Thats why we use dictionaries!;)
This was a new word for me.
