Discussion with Jim Mora on Critical Mass today was sparked by:
Among the contronymns was seed with the example of seeding a tomato meaning to take the seeds out.
I’ve never felt the urge to take seeds out of a tomato but if I did I’d say I was deseeding, not seeding.
The cussin’ was interesting.
I don’t think any of the words have the short, sharp vowels and hard consonants needed to vent your ire but the discussion got a delightful response from a listener: heck is the place for people who don’t believe in gosh.
