Save a word, then use it here.

Any fan of strange or obscure words should go here...

http://www.savethewords.org/

...and adopt a word. The idea is to pick a word and start using it so it doesn't fall into extinction. And what better place to start using a new word than the forums? Anyone who doesn't give this a try is a filthy oporopolist.

We call eggs eggs and not eyeren these days. Language evolves. NATURAL SELECTION. This is the equivalent to keeping the last Tasmanian Tiger in a cage til it eventually dies with a final, gargling breath.

as interesting as the concept is, every word I clicked on, there was no way a normal person could use in day to day conversation. Most people don't babble on using outdated medical terms or about gramophones.

I would never use these words in my day-to-day life because people would colaphize me for being a pretentious fool, and I'd never use them in a paper because I'd get penalized for needlessly using obscure terms. That being said, this is a really cool site. :3

I once met a dude who was dodrantal in size but his face was ugly so that went no where.
After learning how much fat lardlets had, I removed a few from my sandwich.
I am afraid that when I am pregnant, I will be rather pamphagous due to how much I eat now.

This is fun but Keff is right. We'd look like pretentious losers if we adopted these words into our everyday vocabulary.

"I'm a pretentious fool" is the subtext of every post I make as well as being the required mindset to make webcomics, so yeah I suppose it was a laughable statement.
