Save The Words

Save the Words is an online Ouija board that brings dead nouns, verbs, and
adjectives to life.

Each of the words you’ll find here was once a living, breathing part of our
language. Roll your cursor over it, and it’ll cry out: “Over here!” or “Yo!
Pick me!” Click, and you’ll see a succinct definition, an example sentence,
and an invitation to use the word you’ve picked in your everyday
conversation and correspondence. Some words are especially challenging: Good
luck to anyone who chooses urette (it means “dried animal urine absorbed
into chalky soil”). Others, like boreism (“behavior of a boring person”),
are so utible (“useful”) you’ll wonder why they went away in the first
