Magesh ji, we need to keep track of 'used words' so they don't get repeated. You mentioned that you are keeping record of these words. One way to manage used words would be that - you can paste all used words (not the meaning etc.) at the bottom of the post and we can go on adding the word to it while responding. Do you have any other suggestion?

Thanks Mageshji ! I prefer b) Have it at the bottom of every message

We can add the word to the list as soon as we present it so it will be self-sustaining. It will be easier if it is arranged alphabetically for lookup. Thanks Again !
