Save The Words

Save The WordsDon’t be alarmed if you hear the Northwest staff members using some pretty unusual words. No, we’re not taking a cue from Sarah Palin (see “refudiate”) and inventing our own words. Rather, we are participating in the Save The Words campaign. We have adopted a list of obscure words otherwise doomed to extinction by the Oxford American Dictionary. So if you hear us talking about how an aquabib (water drinker) visited the local oporopolist (fruit seller), please don’t assume we're a bunch of foppotees (simple-minded people). We are simply bulking up our slimikin (slender) vocabularies so that they are more crassulent (very fat).
