save the englush language

  • Adopt A Word

    Help save the English language! There are over 60,000 words in our language but we only use about 7,000. The publishers of the Oxford English Dictionary have come up with a campaign to SAVE THE WORDS. Their adorable website encourages you to adopt an endangered word and pledge to use it as often as possible. Like philargyrist, “That diva is a total philargyrist!” Which means: someone who loves money. In your succisive time please help to keep these beloved words from being erased forever.
