    Language crucial, but do we need all these new words?

    Local columnist T.J. Ray has always stressed the importance of language, but he’s getting a little bothered by some of the words that are working their way into everyday use. He points to words like “modality,” “incent,” “analyzation,” “athleticism” and “physicality” as examples with most seeming to owe their popularity to TV announcers. (October 1, 2010, Page 4A)
