The oxford dictionary gives this meaning for the word for the word "diction".
If I use the this word as in the following sentence, will it be correct.
"The words that are commonly used in news channels should be in your diction."
Here I haven't used the word as meaning like 1) above rather it has been used somewhat meaning "repertoire of words that the particular person uses in his speaking".
Is it right or incorrect use of the word "diction".
Can you please give some other sentences where the word "diction" is used.
Thanks a lot.
