Hi All --

Here's some food for thought.

According to the Global Language Monitor ( http://www.languagemonitor.com/no-of-words ), there's a new English word with significant usage every 98 minutes.

So, does this strengthen the case for controlled vocabularies, or indicate that the task of controlling the English language is hopeless?

                                                Cheers,  -- Adrian
