A thought spoken ...

The middle English definition of 'word' is 'a thought spoken.' How beautiful is that?

According to the Global Language Monitor, the English Language adds a new word every 98 minutes and in April of 2009, we will reach one million words.

Great article at the Smithsonian site on how lexicographers decide which words are really deserving of being in dictionaries and qualify as words that people use in their daily language.
