WORDS ABOUT WORDS
But don't blame me if some of these neologisms have hit the lexical dumpster even as you read them. Such is the nature of neology. ... For words are the living tissue of any language. Just like our skin cells, words have a life, wear out, and slough off. Then new verbal tissue takes their place.
