Society of Endangered Words

Endangered Words

Recently, 2010, my nephew informed that six words were removed from a major dictionary. He was displeased with this. I informed him that we should form a society to save these endangered words. He agreed. This article is the first salvo to stop the impertinents that dare to threaten these at risk words.

(1) Unusual Words : http://users.tinyonline.co.uk/gswithenbank/unuwords.htm Excellent site for seldom used words.

(2) Unusual Words; Rarely used words; http://www.brownielocks.com/words.html A really fun site. I love the graphics and cartoons!

(3) Rare Words : This site has a good sharp looking presentation and the rare words are easy to read with their definitions. The word I like is jabberwock : " An individual who engages in nonsensical speech or writing but puts on the appearance that the words are coherent and logical." http://www.mshamilton.com/Rare_words.htm

My direct knowledge of seldom used words comes from medicine.  (1)  Esophagogastroduodenoscopy;  in "lay language" this word means a doctor uses a flexible tube to look at the stomach's interior by passing the tube through the patient's mouth and esophagus (swallowing tube) into the patient's stomach.  Other names for esophagogastroduodenoscopy are : upper endoscopy, flexible upper endoscopy; and EGD is the acronym for esophagogastroduodenoscopy.

It is my sincere hope that this site can help save endangered words.

"Michelle Knight: I forgive Cleveland kidnapper"


CLEVELAND (AP) — One of the three women held captive in a Cleveland house before escaping last year said she forgives the man who kidnapped and tortured her for nearly a decade.

Michelle Knight, interviewed Monday on NBC's "Today" show, said Ariel Castro deserves forgiveness because she'd want to be forgiven if she did wrong, and "that's the way of life."

She added, "he is a human being and every human being needs to be loved," even if he did wrong.

Tuesday is the anniversary of the escape from the house by Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus. Knight, 33, said she doesn't see much of the other two women, saying "we're all now living in our own way."

Knight — who has a book coming out Tuesday — said she's a singer who just recorded a song, and she's also training to be a boxer.

The 53-year-old Castro pleaded guilty in August to hundreds of charges and committed suicide in prison.

Knight said in the interview that she was surprised when Castro killed himself, wondering "why would he hurt his children like that?"

The women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004. Berry was 14, DeJesus was 16 and Knight was 20. They were rescued from Castro's run-down house May 6, 2013, after Berry broke through a screen door.

Berry and DeJesus are collaborating with two Washington Post reporters on a book due out next year. Charles Ramsey, the man credited with helping the women escape from the house, also has written a book.
