GUEST,Hilary in NZ Worst New Words in the 'English' Lang. (143* d) RE: Worst New Words in the 'English' Lang. 28 Jun 00

I'm not positive, but I don't think anybody yet has mentioned that language is a living thing and if it's not continually evolving and growing it will become a dead language, something I'm sure we don't want. Myself, I love making up new words for things [loved that "biggerize"] and if they are creative and help make us understood - well - isn't that what language is for? Music, painting, in arts like this we applaud new things, new ways of looking at things...why is everyone always so stodgy about language. I consider that an art too. luv [sic] Hilary
