Forbidden words

Justine is saving me the bother of blogging about words writers may not use. Go over there and have a look. It's funny.

As Justine's comments are closed, may I add that only T.S. Eliot really gets away with 'crepuscular'. And the only reason latinate leftover words like 'pulchritudinous' have survived is because people read them in books, AND because they are not spoken very often (otherwise the syllables would get worn down and run together with use). So the power lies with you writers - use it or lose it, guys!!
