Inkhorns and sesquipedalianism

I have been totally consumed with my day job the past few days. The semester starts at Bama next week.

Cause I don’t want ya to think I forgot ya, I’m sending you to a nice piece by Stan Carey, who blogs at Sentence First. He talks about word choice and defines “inkhorn” and “sesquipedalianism” for you in an article titled Does word length matter?, written for a UK-based business-writing training company.

See ya soon . . .
