The incredible shrinking English vocabulary: Evolutionary biologist
predicts that some of the words you used today are going extinct
English, perhaps the biggest, most influential world language ever, is
showing some signs of coming apart at the seams, according to
evolutionary biologists at Reading University, who are predicting that
a number of the English words you probably used today, common ones
like dirty, bad, and turn, may go extinct over the next 700 – 800
years. . . .
