(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.

    I speak Spanish and I can help you learning faster if you like. But I also want to be helped. This is very important for me, I can´ t speak English well yet but I try to learn some words every day. I´ m also interested in Russian language, so, if you are patient and want to share your knowledge with me or learn Spanish, you´ re welcome. My hobbies are playing piano, listening to music, painting, spend time with friends, etc. Estoy aprendiendo Inglés, me falta mucho por conocer todavía, pero intento practicar cada día, si querés practicar o ayudarme, escribíme, va a ser un gusto. Qué hago en mi tiempo libre? Escucho música, toco el piano, me junto con amigos, salgo a correr, intento aprovechar el tiempo, no hay mucho... jaja.
