Michigan College Tires of the Logorrhea – Campaigns For Old Words
Wayne State University has been listening to the language we use recently. And frankly, it's causing them some anhedonia.
Not even a month after Lake Superior State College called for the banning of certain words, Wayne State University's Wayne State Word Warriors want to bring back words that don't get used much anymore. Words like "fusby" - which means "fat and squat". (Seems a little judgy for the year 2019, but...)
The Warriors have come up with ten words they want back in circulation. Two of them -IMO - are perfect for current day America:
Anechdoche - A conversation in which everyone is talking, but no one is listening. And -
Logorrhea - Excessive and often incoherent talkativeness or wordiness.
