Save The Words

One of my jobs as husband to an English teacher is to point out interesting English/language/literature web stuff.  My latest discovery is a site called Save The Words.

The sites an attempt to save words that, due to lack of use, are in danger from being dropped from the dictionary.  You adopt a word and use it as often as possible to increase it's usage statistics.  The interface is interesting looking a a lot like a postered wall but the sound can become annoying.

Since most of you who read Homer's Travels are interested in the written word, maybe we can keep some words alive.
