Save the Words

Okay, it's only awesome if you're a word geek, but if you are, I promise you will love this. Please note: the site has sound. Awesome sound.

(Explanation: the Oxford English Dictionary people are trying to save several obsolete words from falling out of the English language, by asking people to adopt them. In the sense of using them as often as possible, yes, but also in the sense of picking one that will be your own and taking care of it. My only issue with this is that there are so many fantastic words here, I find myself completely unable to choose -- which isn't helped by the fact that they're all adorably saying "Pick me!" and "Over here!" and the like as my mouse rolls over them.)

Click on words to get their definitions and sample sentences. (The sample sentence for "lignicide," which means "woodcutter": "I'm a lignicide and I'm okay, I sleep all night and I work all day.")
