Endangered Words

bwbtol1Or Ninnyhammer Gets It!

In the age of the text and the tweet, some 20 percent of our endangered words may be slipping from usage: a sobering thought for anyone with a love of language that extends beyond the telephone keypad.

The campaign to Bring Words Back to Life is calling upon anyone interested in saving some of these dear, wise, elderly and enfeebled words to help us breathe new life into old. Let’s snatch begrumpled from the brink of obscurity, jazz up jargogle and massage poor sick kedge-belly back to life. We want to open our wink-a-peeps and with your help, champion their cause.
