Lexical Downsizing In These Belt-Tightening Times

The Dow Jones is down 500 points, I know we all have to re-evaluate our lifestyle choices, maybe do a little inventory consolidating, but for the love of God – don’t let them jettison these 24 excellent words from the Collins English Dictionary!

My personal favourite (although it was very, very hard to choose) has to be:

Apodeictic: Unquestionably true by virtue of demonstration.

Oh, what the hell. One more:

Oppugnant: Combative.
