OK, I won't bring up that (forbidden in 2002) word that computer systems developers use to describe the 'function' or even refer to its 'functions' in the plural sense (as if "functions" ain't enough)...

... but last night I heard a politcal analyst referring to a certain mid-east country's leaders' "intentionality" to use certain kinds of weapons. I almost stopped breathing.

My aresenal of weaponality against intellectualistality is reaching its full limitability.

You dern tooting, Cap K,

What this World needs is an lingual man, a man of proper phrasing and better-than-average skills of pronunciation to save us from the upcoming collapse of civilization and the fires of mass destruction.

Yeah, maybe someone from the large number of pedants on this fine precise iconoclastic board...yeah.
