(Non-alphabetical character)



verbicide


An act of word destruction; i. e., a word ceases to exist or loses meaning due to the act of an inividual. For example, some would consider the act of verbing to be verbicidal.
Valley girls haved used the word like so inappropriately for so long that I would like to charge them with verbicide.
