March 24 – Contumelious?

Contumelious?
Impertinent! Impudent!
I miss the old words.

I miss the old words but when you have room for a total of 17 syllables, what are you going to do?

It’s scary for me because when I read 1984 and Winston worked rewriting the dictionary into newspeak, I couldn’t imagine how words could be eliminated.
