Each year, hundreds of words are dropped from the English language. Your job, ‎should you choose to accept it-- save one. Just ‎hit the adopt-a-word link, and go from there. Warning: The desperate little ‎voices may not be work-safe.

I adopted "krioboly," or, the sacrifice of many rams.  I figured since I'm an Aries, and born in the year of the goat, it's a good word for me. :>p  They send you a little adoption certificate and everything.

WTF, long play? I seriously use this all the time, though usually shortened to LP, but not always. Don't they know that people are STILL pressing vinyl? Crazy.

Some wonderful words up for adoption there. I picked up "odymometer"--an instrument for measuring pain. Could come in useful in the freelance life.
