I went online and read some of the tweets from Merriam Webster. They are often playful but also precise definitions that enlighten readers. Sometimes the image or timing of posts about words in the news adds commentary to what is going on in our world. Like Janes, I approve of this, and agree that sometimes it is necessary to engage with others by taking a stand in a civil, principled manner. Now I follow @MerriamWebster!
As I often say, we need to listen to each other. But we also need to speak at times, and it is essential that we use our words carefully. Thanks to #WordsMatter, we have another way to make sure we do that.
Thank you, Mr. Janes and other librarians! And gracias, Merriam Webster!
