Date: Thu, 29 Dec 1994 13:40:25 -0800 From: Dan Alford Subject: Word of the Year My votes are for 1) sylvanshine 2) spamming 3) vegetal leather 4) fetal reduction 5) polydoxy 6) neither -- I have a write-in candidate: Langscape -- the language/culture portion of one's total worldview This word was coined during this past year by an American Indian, Sakej Youngblood Henderson, to improve my clumsy phrasing of 'wordworld'. (PS -- I would have placed 'morph' in category 5, most promising, rather than 2.) -- Moonhawk (%->) <"The fool on the hill sees the sun going down and> <-- McCartney/Lennon>
