Save the Words

If you’re a reader or a writer or sim­ply a logophile, the esca­lat­ing impov­er­ish­ment of the Eng­lish lan­guage vexes you. So why not take arms against it? The fine folks who pub­lish the won­drous Oxford Eng­lish Dic­tio­nary estab­lished the Save the Words web­site to fos­ter such action. So, go ahead. Sign up for a word a day. Adopt a word. Encour­age oth­ers to expand their lex­i­cons beyond the F word as noun, verb, adjec­tive, and adverb. We’ll all be the richer for it.

My pulse waxes caprizant at the thought.
