Synonymic Deletions

Authors

Tom Pulliam

Abstract

Each sect, cult or specialized denomination has a Scripture from which its adherents draw inspiration. For logophiles, there's little doubt that it has long been, and continues to be, Dmitri Borgmann's Language on Vacation (Scribner's, 1965). Scanning past issues of Word Ways, one quickly becomes aware that many of its articles extend concepts earlier described in this book.
