each year, hundreds of words fall victim to the dreaded redundancy. this site is a viral movement dedicated to rescuing words from oblivion. you adopt a word you heart, and make a commitment to integrating that word back into society. i know. totally geeking out over here.
i once had a boyfriend who, upon realizing the…err…unexpected extent of my vocabulary, sheepishly asked me to start sending him a word of the day. i guess so that he’d know what i was talking about at least half of the time. anyways, i’m pretty sure his assistant started reading them since he never bothered, and i’d venture to guess he still doesn’t know what volition means. dumbass.
being a bit of a word-snob, i often complain about the limitations of language. in my opinion, there are certain sentiments that our vocabularies simply cannot articulate perfectly and succinctly. obvie, the more you can augment your vobabulary the less likely you are to stumble. which is why i’m loving this site: savethewords.org
