Save the Words!

Author: Anastasia V. Pergakis // Category:


I was blog surfing today and Heather Howland blogged about this and so I had to spread the word - literally!

There are many words in the English language that we no longer use! It's sad! So, there is this wonderful site where you can go adopt these words that need so much of our love!

These are three words that I adopted!

magistricide
(n.) the killing of a teacher or master

snollygoster
(n.) a shrewd, unprincipled person, especially a politician

nubivagant
(adj.) moving throughout or among clouds

What words will you adopt? Go Save the Words!

Haha! Thanks, Anastasia. I adopted four words of my own and included them in a post today with a link to your blog!

Hi, Anastasia. The word I want to adopt is "representation," as in Mr. Yeomans, I want to offer representation to you to become your agent!

You, too, right?

You have a fun, breezy blog, Roland

Great idea! I love looking through the dictionary and finding antiquated words that I believe should still be in use.

What a great site! I plan on much ironic use of the word 'flosculation' in the near future.
