Save The Words

Today I came across a staggering statistic that 90% of everything that we write is communicated in only 7,000 words.  This not a lot considering the vast vocabulary of the English language.  Not to mention Greek, Latin, and all the other languages we borrow from to create our modern syntax.
The Oxford Dictionary contains full entries for 171,476 words in current use, and 47,156 obsolete words.
I'm tired of not doing things about heartbreaking statistics, start small and adopt a word today...expand your mind and your vocabulary.
