link Here vestigal is refered to as vestigal organs, though in the article vestigial is said to be the usual term. On from here:
S to N VIGILANTE

VIGILANTE

Just adding another I for INVIGILATE seems so...straightforward.

Whereas changing G to E would be ELEVATING the entire conversation, wouldn't it?

I'm a biologist & have used and read 'vestigal' often for 20+ yrs. I didn't realize it's jargon. I guess I'll consider it a vestigal word from now on. blush

Coming to my own defense is so (v to n) inelegant.
