I'd give the calendar four stars for the actual collection of words. I'm subtracting one star because of the elitist, snobbish connotations which characterize all the examples of word usage. The implied assumption, that the pampered, over-priveleged members of high society are the only ones who might be interested in maintaining a respectable vocabulary, is offensive.
