savethewordsWhile driving home from work last week, I listened to a segment on NPR’s All Things Considered which was featuring a man who’s mission is to save words from dying.

Edward Ong, the word saver, created a site that allows visitors to “adopt a word.”  The terms of adoption are simple: The word’s new family agrees to use the word as frequently as possible in conversations throughout the days and weeks ahead.

If you are interested in adopting a word, visit SAVE THE WORDS. You’ll find yourself reaching for a dictionary for a definition or two!
