From what I've found on Google, the meaning of the vocab "inherited" is the money, property, or a title received as an heir at the death of the previous holder. For example, inherited wealth from parent.

However, I'd like to describe something worthy given to me by my elder member of my family but they are not dead. What is another more appropriate vocabulary that can be used?

The person one inherits something from does not have to be dead. For example,

I've inherited my curly hair from my father, who is sitting right here beside me.

You can simply use "give", or you can try "gift". For example,

I was given/gifted this Rolex watch by my grandfather.

A family heirloom can be "passed down" from father to son.

Slightly related -- clothes can be "handed down," say, from an older child to a younger child. At that point they are called "hand-me-downs." Someone might say "As the youngest of six children, I never got new clothes from the store -- only hand-me-downs."

As shown. A vocabulary is a entire group of words. A person who knows how to use a great number of words has a large vocabulary.

It is true but as I know it is enough to know just 500 words for everyday speech. I like writing essays to increase the number of words. (Link deleted by moderator. Please don't post spam).

I have the feeling you may have missed the point.

However, you have correctly used 'word' in your post above. You did not write "500 vocabularies" as I feared you might.

I know the difference between word and vocab and it isn't interesting for me at all. In my previous post, I said that it is no need to know a great number of words it is enough to know at least 500 words and that's it.

Never mind. I mistook "Kev" for "Kenny".
