I am not a native English language speaker and trying to improve my skill with this language day by day. Today I came to know about the word – Redact/Redacted.
As an attempt to make myself more skilled in English; I have decided to learn a new word whenever I find one anywhere. The more words I know the more I will be able to express myself, right?
I came to know about the word today while watching an episode of Limitless.
