Golder provides services in a variety of areas, including mining, oil and natural gas, power, water resource management, land development, waste management, and more.

Archives: Banished Words 1977

A call for return to normality in the meaning of words

New Dimension - As in "He'll add a new dimension to the cabinet." Means: "I can't explain why we're hiring (appointing) him/her.

To Share - As in "I'd like to share this with you." Means: "Shut up and I will cram this down your throat whether you like it or not."

Perfectly Candid - Means: "I have been caught lying and now I shall see how little of the truth I must tell."

Active Possibility - Means: "There is no way we're going to do what you ask."

National Federal Word Bank - The Unicorn Hunters request that President Carter establish this bank to counteract depletion of the audio impact of deflated words. The "ultimate four letter words" would go into this bank with a five-year moratorium on their use. As a result of over use in newspapers, cinema, books, radio-TV and even some comic strips, no strong words are available when a man really needs one, as after hitting thumb with hammer.

Alternative Words - in absence of above (1977 only): Balderdash, fap & drat, Godfrey Daniels, rapscallion, and montebank.

1977 RESTORATION: Good - The return of "good" to its former meaning. It no longer means anything important, having been replaced by "super," "remarkable" and "astounding."
