This week’s word is…
I ask you… how cruel is this?!
To make the word to describe the fear of long words a word containing no less than 36 letters is nothing less than twisted!
I will grant you, I did giggle at first when I came across it, but as a person with a pretty crippling phobia myself, my compassionate side won out.
Who do we write to in order to petition that this word be sent to Room 101?
I propose the phobia of long words be represented by an acronym instead… POLW. Isn’t that kinder?
Who knew language could be so mean?!
