Word Warriors celebrate the inherent beauty and agility of the English language

Wayne State Word Warriors released their 2024 list of words to reinvigorate your voice. One example in law is Pettifogger: “An inferior legal practitioner, especially one who deals with petty cases or employs dubious practices.”

Chris Williams, assistant director of editorial services for Wayne State Marketing and Communications, and head of the Word Warriors program, introduced the 2024 list with his own voice(excerpt):
“Once again, our Word Warriors have provided a collection of words that makes our language a bit livelier. This year’s list is particularly evocative. I love to picture myself inhaling the petrichor after a summer thunderplump or listening to someone twankle away on a guitar. It’s really a great selection this year.”
