Words, words, words
It should come as no surprise to you all that I am fascinated by the way language works. Hey, blog title! One of the things I like to observe is how new words come into wide use, or some words replace others. Think about how "issues" is replacing "problems."
Anyway, I think a new word fad is the use of "parse." Or maybe, in my culture right now, it's being used heavily. But it's useful and short, and may be here to stay.
