bev – Thanks!

Teju – “Word games” is redundant. Language without play isn’t language; it’s mathematics.

Joan – The problem is that there are many wikis out there. If you want to make a new verb on the model of “Google,” I think it should be “Wikipede.”

Bill – “Pelagic” just makes me think of seabirds. You almost never encounter it modifying anything else. Still, I think we can agree it’s a cool word.

Nathan – Thanks for helping out. I used to have a bunch of handy reference links in the sidebar when this blog was still at its old location, but that was before I had the smorgasblog and such.
