Blah, blah, blah

A while back, in the previous incarnation of this blog, there was a post about the Save the Words website which invites people to adopt a word and put it back into circulation.

As Save the Words tells us, 90% of everything we write is communicated by just 7,000 words, and “every year hundreds of words are dropped from the English language. Old words, wise words, hard-working words. Words that once led meaningful lives, but now lie unused, unloved and unwanted.” 

This is the word that jumped out at me today – lovely, isn’t it?

And if you like words, here’s another interesting website – Knoword.

Here you can play a game. You’ll be given a randomly generated dictionary definition with the first letter of the word filled in and you have to identify that word. A lovely timewaster . . .
