hi Bowerbird, nice blog. Just found it through our shared appreciation of Lost in Translation.

I like that link you've put up,my personal peeves are when people use 'seminal' to mean 'important' Mostly in sports-broadcasting. And 'enormity' to mean 'enormous' or 'enormousness'. That has become a widely-used and accepted term now, but it originally meant 'wickedness'.
