Save The Words!

Launched by the Oxford English Dictionary, Save the Words is a lighthearted project "to save forgotten words from obsolescence." Users can go to the website just to learn about all these forgotten words rarely used in everyday conversation. They've been "designed" differently and in vibrant colors, making the interaction fun, although there are a lot of typefaces on there that induce a bit of a gag reflex haha. You can just browse through the words to stock up for the day, or a particularly competitive night of Scrabble, or you can even ADOPT A WORD! How fun! You register and then pledge that if you adopt the word, you will try to use it in everyday conversation to bring it back from the dead.

Seen first on GOOD.


  1. oh my gosh this is sooo up my alley. :)

  2. Update: After spending what was probably a tad too long browsing the words, I ended up adopting about 6. Thank God they're not children.
