I just heard someone use the word ‘gerrymandering’. It’s a silly-sounding word. I think ‘glom’ and ‘glomming’ is also a bit silly. Recently I saw a poll for the ‘most beautiful word in the English language’. I don’t know what word won, but I sure hope glom and gerrymander came in last and second to last.
Incidentally, I think the suffix ‘-ness’ makes any word sound lazy. Something about ‘-ness’ signals a lack of inventiveness.
Of course, it’s ridiculous to mention things like this. But it’s my blog, so I can be ridiculous once in a while.
