I love old words, words found in Victorian texts and before; I love the whole vocabulary that once was, I find it a great shame that society doesn’t find it necessary to preserve them the best they can whilst incorporating new fashionable words.
I know many people who have an old way about them, me for example, but also some rare friends; they are made to feel like old fashioned blathering idiots for talking the way they do, yet I find it admirable.
Why can’t we preserve the old way conversationally speaking? Why are people made to feel almost ashamed for keeping rare words alive – and why is the OED removing many words from the dictionary?
It’s a shame, but I aim to preserve them the best I can through writing.
Yes, I understand that to read me can be very difficult for some, but I aim to help broaden people’s phraseological horizons.
