Dinosaur Comics on words, or terms, or expressions, or phrases, or idioms

‘i’ll be communicating entirely through glances and MAYBE raised eyebrows from now on’

Dinosaur Comics exposed the problem with having so many words in English to describe one concept. I don’t think it’s a major problem once you get to know the language better over time and a particular situation calls for a particular word but it makes you realise why thesauruses are so big.

And “I hereby RETIRE FROM WORDS” is an evergreen mood. Or frame of mind. Or emotional state.
