It’s Okay to Make Up Words!

Check out this article off of The Guardian‘s website. It’s all about reminding us that’s A-okay to make up words. Just follow the link: “Why We Need to Invent New Words”

Also, if you’re looking for cool, interesting words that are in fact “real words” insofar as they’ve been documented as such, check out these two awesome books, Foyle’s Philavery, and Foyle’s Further Philavery, both compiled and collected by Christopher Foyle.

It’s all in word choice, and what’s by convention a real word sometimes isn’t good enough. It has to be precisely the right word.
