Forty Fads I’d Like To See Again

Dictionary

I might be sort of a windbag, but I like to believe that I choose my words wisely.  If I use a big word where I could have used a small word, it’s generally because I’m trying to add some variety to my prose.  That’s what good writers do.  They don’t intentionally try to confuse their readers.

Anyway, I’d like good diction to come back into style.  And I’d also like to ask for permission to slug anyone who uses a big word when a smaller word defines what they’re trying to say more accurately.  Has that ever been in style?
