Seriously, folks, we need to take a look at word power. So much is fast communication today, so let’s simplify where we can and examine what we are truly saying.
Once in a long-ago classroom, an English teacher admonished her class with this statement: “Class, we need to discuss your usage of words. One is swell, the other is lousy.” A sigh passed through the room as one student raised his hand and said, “Yes, Mrs. Jenkins, but what are the words?”
Take the words “like,” and “kinda.” You know, like, I might do that, but I kinda don’t want to. These have become idioms in every conversation. “To go” has replaced “to say,” as in “He goes…” describing a conversation.
