In today’s modern world, there is a tendency to feel as if the most sensible and basic words don’t measure up.
Everything must be … “officialized.”
If you read the classics, how many of these officalized words do you ever come across?
This is used (not utilized) by those who work in cubicles who are afraid that if they try to describe their very official daily tasks without using the “-ize” suffix, they will be seen as not official enough.
Let’s set priorities. Or use our time wisely.
Let’s be sensitive to not homogenizing our language.
Wait … I did it.
