I recently became aware of a site run by the Oxford University Press called Save The Words1. It contains a collection of English words facing obsolescence. Visitors are invited to “adopt” a word — which involves agreeing to the following statement:
I went ahead and adopted two words because I’m that kind of guy.
Drollic /drəʊl/ Of or pertaining to a puppet show.
Blateration /blætəˈreɪʃən/ Babbling chatter.
Head on over there and pick some words for yourself! Or don’t. More for me.
